A changing newspaper landscape will see the Surf Coast Times published on Thursdays from next week

SEE YOU ON THURSDAY INSIDE TODAY

AFTER 11 years of growth and news on Tuesday, the Surf Coast Times will be published on Thursdays as of next week. Changes in the local newspaper landscape combined with the opportunity to provide a great offering to our readers means the move to Thursday makes sense. The Surf Coast Times, while still focussing on the happenings of every day, will be built around the weekend. There will be more time and space available for coverage of events on the past weekend and more timely coverage of everything the region has to offer on the upcoming weekend. Real estate, arts, sports, retail and community event enthusiasts will get more out of our editorials and advertising. A more successful paper means a more generous offering for our community and more space for our community stories. While the day might be changing, our attitude will not. Week after week, month after month, year after year, we have strived to be the voice of the local community and focus on what is good about living on the Surf Coast. We will continue to do this, now on Thursdays.

Sands owners slam advertisement BY HAMISH BROOKS THE owners of The Sands Torquay (TST) have reacted strongly to a negative advertisement about a proposed aged care facility at the resort. They have threatened legal action against the advertisers if the campaign continues and sent an open letter to residents slamming its publication. The advertisement, published on page 13 of the Surf Coast Times last week, carried two images of senior citizens – one of a man putting while sitting on a walker and another of a woman being fed by a carer – behind a large red logo which read “Say no! to an aged care facility at The Sands”. The open letter to all Surf Coast Shire residents

from Handbury Group chairman Paddy Handbury said the advertisement was “offensive”. “We respect and welcome the open voicing of opinions both for and against the Handbury Group’s proposal for TST (which is now before the Surf Coast Shire council and on open exhibition for a six-week period). “But this type of anonymous advertisement helps no-one and indeed does damage on a number of fronts. “First and foremost, it was shamefully ageist, stereotyping and discriminating against senior citizens based on their perceived age.” Mr Handbury criticised the Surf Coast Times for publishing the advertisement and took aim at

the creators of the advertisement for “(failing) to understand that the proposal (for an aged care facility) is being sought as a direct result the Peppers Hotel at TST suffering a decline in its occupancy levels”. Mr Handbury wrote that to call what is proposed a “nursing home” is incorrect. “The Handbury Group’s proposal is for a high-end aged care residential facility.” Mr Handbury wrote “the advertisement was alarmist, puerile in content and in extremely bad taste”. “Supporters of this type of advertising have no place in the fabric that we have strived to build at TST. “It would serve well the people behind this low-

brow, cheap shot, emotionally overcharged and misinformed type of advertising to think more deeply before they act in such a disrespectful manner.” The people behind the advertisement had not returned Surf Coast Times’ calls before the paper went to print. St Quentin Consulting has lodged a request on behalf of the Handbury Group for an amendment of the resort’s planning permit to allow the 100-room hotel to be converted into a 112-room residential aged care facility. Submissions to Surf Coast Shire on the planning amendment close on October 4. See “Our seniors deserve better”, Letters, page 29.

News in brief Echo fades in Torquay THE Geelong Advertiserrun weekly free newspaper the Echo has closed its Torquay office. Staff were seen exiting the office on Friday, with the paper now to be run out of the Addy’s Geelong offices. The move means the community voice no longer has a presence in their readership’s shire. A “we have moved” sign is up in the window of their former office in Gilbert Street.

Local photographer Graeme Plant snapped some spectacular scenes in Jan Juc last week, capturing a rainbow over stormy skies from Bird Rock on Friday and a pod of whales getting up close and personal with a surfer on Thursday. These whales may be among the last to be spotted during migration this year with sightings common along the Great Ocean Road from June to August but significantly rarer in mid to late September.

Support shows for Tutungi family BY ALI DEANE AS SOON as Simon Daly heard the news about his friend and colleague Casey Tutungi’s tragic football accident this season, the Falls Music Festival founder knew he could do something to help. Mr Daly, Casey’s brother Troy, some of the biggest names in Australian music and a swag of volunteers are staging a full day music festival at Simonds Stadium this weekend. A Show for Casey will see You Am I Allstars, Paul Dempsey, Regurgitator, Missy Higgins, Lisa Mitchell, Adalita, Dan Sultan, The Bamboos and Yacht Club DJ’s hit the stage the day after the Grand Final, with all ticket sales going towards Casey’s rehabilitation. Casey suffered a severe spinal injury in an on-field collision and has been working hard in rehabilitation, as well as continuing to co-coach his team South Barwon, which won the GFL grand final on the weekend. The support from Mr Daly, the local Lorne community, football clubs and businesses across the nation have continued to pour in, through club events, fundraisers and tin rattles. Casey’s father Chris Tutungi said it had been amazing, and that all the love and support they had received helped the family stay strong. “When tragic things happen, at the beginning you are very emotionally upset. “To know people have been thinking about him, and to have that support then, and going forward, if it could have made Casey better, he’d be better now. “The footy clubs, and all the people putting their hand up for different roles, a lot of people have said yes, and it has been fantastic and absolutely amazing, the support for Casey, to us as a family, we are very grateful.” The Falls Festival Community Fund has contributed $16,000 and the Lorne Lions Club $5,000 towards the staging of A Show for Casey. Lions Club president Stephen Hishon said “the

Tutungi family are true community givers and we hope our contribution can help Casey find new ways to improve his body, which in turn will give hope and countless opportunities to thousands of people with disabilities around the world.” Chris Tutungi said following the big weekend of finals football, if Casey’s health was up to it, he would be there, as he has been looking forward to hearing the performances of some of his favourite bands. “He wants to thank the artists and bands there, and thank everyone who has helped. It’s such a good vibe at these concerts, it will be a great day.” A Show for Casey is a licensed, all ages event, children 12 and under and people in wheelchairs and their carers are admitted for free. For tickets ($50 plus booking fee) head to ashowforcasey.com. Tickets are also available from Ghanda stores and at Simonds Stadium. Gates open at midday September 29. All profits go to the Casey Tutungi Appeal.

Missy Higgins is one of the headline acts at a Show for Casey.

Greenearth still committed to Anglesea geothermal BY HAMISH BROOKS AN UNSTABLE climate for investment in the renewable energy sector is not affecting the commitment of an energy company to a local geothermal resource project in Anglesea. Greenearth Energy’s Geelong Geothermal Power Project (GGPP) hit a snag last month when its expression of interest (EoI) submission to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) was rejected. The rejection could affect a $25 million state government commitment made through the Energy Technology Innovation Strategy, a state government

funding channel for large scale, pre-commercial, sustainable energy demonstrations. The deadline for the activation of the match funding – where the state government money needs to be matched by another investor’s – is September 30, but a number of extensions have been granted to Greenearth Energy and the company is hopeful of securing more time to pursue the resource. Company managing director Samuel Marks said the geothermal team at Greenearth Energy in partnership with Melbourne University submitted a detailed expression of interest to ARENA in March. “(It) proposed a de-risked approach to

commercialising geothermal resources in Victoria. “Greenearth Energy subsequently answered two rounds of further questions from ARENA relating to this proposal.” Mr Marks said the de-risked approach involved the drilling of a smaller test well to further understand the resource before moving to a proof of concept plant. “The fact that ARENA has declined this proposal at such an early stage of the process is a concern for the industry as a whole and Greenearth Energy is now considering its next steps for the GGPP. “Greenearth Energy will seek to hold discussions with other key parties to the GGPP (including the

Victorian government, Melbourne University and others) in order to determine the best way forward for Greenearth Energy’s Australian geothermal interests. “Greenearth Energy maintains that the GGPP is a compelling geothermal prospect for Australia and we are disappointed with the feedback on the EoI request, particularly given our application was in-line with ARENA’s proposal and provided a very clear five stage path to commercialisation.” Geothermal energy is classed as renewable energy and refers to electricity that can be generated by harnessing heat transferred from the earth’s molten core to accessible underground deposits.

Lorne Kindergarten celebrates 65 years BY DEAN WEBSTER LORNE Kindergarten’s storied 65 years of operation is to be celebrated with a Spring Dance on October 18. Lorne Kindergarten began life in the Anglican Church Hall and eventually combined with the Baby Health Care Centre in 1956 with Eva Norton as president. With a loan from council a new facility was to be built for $32,000 with the money paid back over five years through fundraising and donations. On June 10 1961, the Honourable TA Darcy MLA opened the new building. This was a great achievement from a small community. As with much of the community

infrastructure of that era, it came down to the locals banding together to make things happen. Anita Mottram was appointed the first kindergarten teacher. She was assisted by a parent. The Lorne Kindergarten has come a long way, and now has 25 children in kinder and pre-kinder classes under the supervision of director Michelle Danks and early learning educator Alyce Stribling. The kinder has recently become part of the Surf Coast Shire’s kinder cluster and Ms Danks said that joining the cluster has reduced costs substantially. “With the Surf Coast Shire kinder cluster now dealing with the administration side of the operations, we can use the savings on new initiatives instead of wages

and admin costs. “This year money raised from fundraising will go towards creating an outdoor creek bed eco system to support the children in lifelong learning of environmental sustainability.” Ms Danks is encouraging the community to attend the Spring Dance celebrating 65 years, especially those who have had past involvement in the Lorne Kindergarten. There will be a great band, canapés, silent auction/raffles with all proceeds going to the Lorne Kindergarten. Tickets are $60 each and are available at Lorne Kindergarten or through Karen Stribling 0439 650 838 or Selena Walding 0450 798 405. The Spring Dance is on October 18 from 6.30pm at The View, Lorne Hotel.

Rural land takes gold BY DEAN WEBSTER THE region has jumped into spring, with large swathes of rural land transforming into fields of gold with the popular oilseed canola bursting into flower. With the milder weather and recent rain, grain farmers are optimistic of a good season ahead, however, they are still wary from the sudden stop to the growing season last year. This led to one of the driest spring, summer and autumn seasons on record, severely reducing crop yields and creating a fodder shortage that saw hay prices go through the roof. Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) grains project manager Chris Sounness said wheat plantings this year were similar to last season while canola plantings had fallen due to the dry start. “With good rains not arriving until early June,

many farmers decided against canola this season,� Mr Sounness said. “Across the state canola plantings are down from 400,000 hectares last year to 360,000 hectares this season. “However, croppers in southern Victoria have increased their canola crop by 11,000 hectares to 120,000 hectares this year.� Torquay-based grain grower Brad Rees, who, along with his brothers, sows about 4,000 acres of cereal crops annually, including 700 acres of canola, is hoping the good start to spring continues. “Last year was a disaster, the spring rains came to a dramatic stop causing many crops to fail,� Mr Rees said. “We hope this great start to spring continues with follow-up rains into growing season so we can get some decent yields this year.� Head to depi.vic.gov.au/cropestimates for full details of the DEPI cropping estimates.

A canola crop in full flower at a Connewarre farm.

Women encouraged to fill career firefighter jobs BY JAMES TAYLOR THE start of spring has also seen the start of firefighter recruiting season, with the Country Fire Authority (CFA), Department of Primary Industries and Environment (DEPI) and Parks Victoria all looking to recruit full-time staff. The CFA is looking for fit, enthusiastic women and men to join the ranks of its 693 career firefighters who work shoulder-to-shoulder with the organisation’s 57,000 volunteers. With growing demands on CFA’s services in Melbourne and large regional centres, more career

firefighters are needed to support volunteers to deliver vital emergency services. Information sessions will be held around the state in coming weeks, and successful applicants will begin a 16 week intensive training course in early 2014. CFA chief officer Euan Ferguson said the recruitment drive was also an opportunity to build more diversity into its ranks, and in particular, increase the number of women career firefighters. “While CFA is very diverse in some ways, particularly its volunteer base, there is an underrepresentation of women and people from

culturally diverse backgrounds throughout the organisation.� While age is no barrier, applicants will need to meet high standards of fitness, strength and endurance in addition to the ability to work as part of a strong team in difficult circumstances, and must also be prepared to relocate. Applications are also open for 57 permanent field service officer (FSO) positions with the DEPI and Parks Victoria. DEPI chief fire officer Alan Goodwin said FSOs were the backbone of bushfire prevention and response activities on public land.

“New recruits will be vital not only in putting out fires, but in carrying out planned burns across the state.� DEPI is looking for applicants with good physical fitness, some skills or experience in firefighting or general labour, and a commitment to making Victoria safer from fire. Of the 57 positions, nine are plant operator roles, which require a plant operator ticket. Test your suitability to be a CFA career firefighter at cfa.vic.gov.au/volunteer-careers/suitabilitytest/. To apply for the DEPI positions, head to careers.vic.gov.au.

Pilot project to burn on Great Ocean Road SURF Coast Shire Council is working with VicRoads in a pilot project to reduce fire fuel loads along the Great Ocean Road in Fairhaven. The project will focus on removing woody environmental weeds along the roadside from Lialeeta Road to Yaringa Road in Fairhaven, a steep area with particularly high fire fuel loads where around 95 per cent of vegetation comprises flammable environmental weeds. The area selected for the $15,000 project is near the Aireys Inlet bottom shops

Neighbourhood Safer Place. A spokesperson for the Surf Coast Shire said the work will improve views to the nearby salt marsh and the Aireys Inlet Light House; and the weed removal will increase sight distance for all road users. VicRoads’ regional director William Tieppo said that by working together, the council and VicRoads will trial a fire prevention strategy to help make the community safer. “One of the key benefits of this program with Surf

Mock emergency readies councils for real thing BY HAMISH BROOKS STAFF from three local government areas joined forces in Anglesea last week to prepare for a potential natural disaster. Surf Coast, Colac Otway and Corangamite shires and employees, as well as the Salvation Army, Victoria police, Red Cross and other emergency support agencies took part in a mock set up of an Emergency Relief Centre (ERC). The day-long exercise was part of ongoing ERC training which saw staff undertake real-time roleplaying exercise in a scenario similar to that faced by Victorian communities on Black Saturday. Colac Otway chief executive officer Rob Small described the exercise which included over 100 participants as a great success. “These three municipalities are training together so we can support each other in the face

of an emergency. It’s vital that we are prepared for major emergencies in an era where fire intensity is expected to be greater in the future.” During an emergency, police will activate an ERC which council staff will operate in collaboration with other emergency agencies. “The ERC will provide temporary shelter and a range of services to people who have been directly impacted by an emergency. That support includes basic first aid, food and shelter and information on what government support they can access. “I have full confidence that the council staff who took part in the training with our neighbouring councils will be more confident in their abilities to hit the ground running should we face any future emergencies that require the activation of an ERC.” Colac Otway Shire is looking for a temporary replacement venue for its ERC site in Colac, which was the Bluewater Fitness Centre.

Coast Shire is that together, we aim to reduce the risk of roadside fires occurring,” Mr Tieppo said. “We identified a need to develop preventative measures, identifying high risk locations and putting in place treatment options to reduce the risk of fire from occurring.” One lane of the Great Ocean Road was closed to traffic yesterday between 9am and 3pm for the beginning of the work. The same closure will apply until September 27. After the weed removal, which will be done with

heavy machinery, vegetation will be monitored to assess regrowth and future fire fuel loads. Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker said the council hoped to continue to work closely with VicRoads on future fire fuel reduction works along major roads, particularly the Great Ocean Road. “The Victorian Bushfire Royal Commission raised the importance of agencies working together on bushfire prevention and with its high summer usage, the Great Ocean Road is an important focus for this work, particularly around our coastal communities.”

The new Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Clubhouse (pictured here from the beach) is still on track for its summer opening. A spokesperson for the club said the roof went on a fortnight ago and the building is close to lock up. “All is on schedule to be ready for the new season,” he said. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR

Here we are in AFL Grand Final week and three quarters of the way through 2013 without â&#x20AC;&#x153;blinking an eyeâ&#x20AC;?. And what a huge month it has been for Lorne as we continue to enjoy success across so many different platforms and engage with our community like never before - the momentum of our â&#x20AC;&#x153;little villageâ&#x20AC;? is warming. With the ďŹ rst month of Spring now being described as Super September it is not hard to see why we are the envy of many of our coastal neighbours. ReďŹ&#x201A;ect for a moment on how good this month has been. Two premierships to our local footballers and netballers, a record breaking and superb Lorne Festival of the Performing Arts, the Lorne Independentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst ever â&#x20AC;&#x153;special editionâ&#x20AC;? as the town unites around Point Grey and a fantastic Amyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gran Fondo with almost 5000 cyclists descending onto the Mountjoy Parade starting line. Then to round off the month it was reward for effort for all those that have been actively involved in the community reference groups, all our non resident property owners and visitors alike who have supported our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred outcome with Point Grey, to see the Australian Broadcast Commission pick up on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in our â&#x20AC;&#x153;little villageâ&#x20AC;?. I will make it very clear that the Lorne community did not chase the ABC to take this story to air but rather through the investigatory work of journalist Margaret Paul who had a very good read on the extreme community passion and concerns that need to be listened to. Our passion and commitment is bursting through our town boundaries and being shared by our extended community across a statewide network as our endeavours to deliver the desired outcome for Point Grey is a priority for this town. As this process enters the ďŹ nal stages I am sure we have only just scratched the surface of media coverage given all our efforts have so far been channeled to positive outcomes for Lorne and not the wider media exposure for our concerns. These concerns centre around the greater desire to see two separate buildings at the precinct, one being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;commercial complexâ&#x20AC;? and the other being the Lorne Aquatic and Angling Club. We need to embrace the work of Friends of Lorne and their efforts to have the original crane from the Pier (of which they know the whereabouts) returned and restored to be a remnant of our past and a further vision to expand on the current draft plan to preserve our history.

IAN STEWART CHAIRMAN Committee for Lorne

A Responsive Health Service Do you know without kidney function our body dies! One in three Australians is at risk of developing kidney disease.

Dialysis Sometimes people with kidney disease need dialysis (usually every second day) to maintain their health. Lorne Community Hospital is the only Hospital on the Surf Coast, and along with the Dialysis Unit it provides Acute Care, Aged and Respite Residential Care, and a busy Urgent Care Service, especially during the Summer tourist season. District, Community Nursing and Primary Health Care are also provided through the Hospital. Lorne Community Hospital is proud of its dialysis service providing support to permanent patients as well as Holiday dialysis. Everyone needs a break and it is often difďŹ cult to get one if you need to receive dialysis three times per week. We offer the opportunity to come and enjoy a holiday with family and friends and continue treatment in our quiet and safe sea view unit serviced by our skilled, dialysis trained staff. Our unit is open year around on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and from Christmas week to February the unit opens from Monday to Saturday. Lorne Dialysis Unit is a Satellite Unit of Geelong Hospital (Barwon Health) so the expert local team are well supported by the larger unit.

Urgent Care Around 2,500 presentations are managed every year through the Urgent Care service (Emergency Department). With experienced $OCTORAND.URSECOVERAGETHE5RGENT care service is known for its expertise. The Hospital has been very proactive in recent years to support nurses to continue to develop strong clinical skills. All Registered Nurses have current advanced life support (ALS) certiďŹ cation ensuring they are trained and conďŹ dent in managing resuscitation of critically ill patients. In addition there has been strong support for the new RIPERN (Rural and isolated practice endorsed Registered Nurses) education program which provides for nurses to develop advanced practice skills suited to a service whereby they are often working in an isolated role or with minimal support. Lorne Community Hospital participated in a pilot program in 2010 and since then has supported a total of 7 nurses to gain their qualiďŹ cation. We have seen it add to the clinical conďŹ dence and capability of the team and it often means that the patient can be handled much more efďŹ ciently. Lorne Community Hospital is proud of its suite of services which have grown in response to the community need and pleased that it is able to provide high quality specialist services such as urgent care and dialysis.

COMMUNITY PROFILE If you have heard braying in the St George River area you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagined it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Honky, Karen Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now geriatric donkey, for the last 32 years considered a member of this family who have been associated with Lorne for four generations. Karenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Doug, passed away before realising his dream to retire in Lorne. Before building a house together with her mother, Lina (Bill), and moving to Lorne 25 years ago Karen was a teacher in the Western District. As well as teaching she ran a property carrying mainly sheep and Honky of course. For the last 18 years Karen has owned and managed WAITOGO, a store extraordinaire in Mountjoy Parade.

Vintage bike riders tour Torquay BY TIFFANY PILCHER

(L-R) ANGAIR Wildflower and Art Show organiser Helen Tutt with a display at the show. A beautiful example of Glossodia major (waxlip orchid).

Power of flowers on show in Anglesea THE ANGAIR Wildflower and Art Show held at Anglesea over the weekend attracted a record number of people. ANGAIR president Helen Tutt put the numbers down to a growing community interest in Indigenous plants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be an increased awareness of the benefits of planting Indigenous plants in local gardensâ&#x20AC;?. She said visitors made a beeline for the ANGAIR Indigenous plant stall and carried off arms full of plants. A display of weeds found growing locally showed visitors what to remove, and what not to plant in their gardens. Visitors who brought weeds with them were able to exchange them for a free Indigenous plant. Children made nesting boxes, insect houses and nature pictures; and painted, sculpted and listened to stories. Roberto the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conniesâ&#x20AC;? man â&#x20AC;&#x201C; remember the old tram conductors? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; entertained all with stories about

local flora and fauna. Lucky ones collected a pack of cards with local themes. The Art Show received some stunning creations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; paintings, sculpture, glass and visitors were able to purchase their favourite pieces. Locals and visitors look forward to the ANGAIR Wildflower and Art Show with anticipation each year. ANGAIR is committed to protecting our environment and teaching people the value of the area in which they live. There are over 100 different orchids growing in Anglesea and Aireys Inlet. Of all Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plant species, 25 per cent are found in this area. Many of them were in bloom for visitors who took the free guided tours to the Anglesea heath to see them growing in their natural habitat, as part of the show. One of the highlights is the display of the stunning Indigenous flowers in the hall.

EAGLE eyed Torquay visitors and locals may have spotted something a bit out of the ordinary zooming around The Esplanade over the weekend. Seven Velosolex enthusiasts from all over Victoria took to the streets on their vintage motorised bicycles as part of their monthly meet up on Saturday. The French bikes were produced in Europe from 1946 to 1988 as the first sustainable answer to motorised transportation. Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ernest Miller has worked on 18 Velosolex bikes over the years and brought his completely restored 1960 model along for the ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are only 150 of them in the whole of Australia out of 7 million that were produced so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very rare,â&#x20AC;? he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know there are two in Geelong, one in Barwon Heads, one in Drysdale and I have two â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it for the whole region.â&#x20AC;? The group meets once a month, each time in a different town to ride and catch up on all things Velosolex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very casual group but we have a great time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always get a few looks and if a hand ever pops out for a wave we know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Frenchman,â&#x20AC;? he laughed. Mr Miller said the bikes were first brought to Australia to be used by the Salvation Army. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were brought here as an economical way to deliver their goods from place to place but they were first produced to address the shortage of vehicles and petrol across Europe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their history is fascinating and they keep us fit and healthy so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great hobby to have.â&#x20AC;?

Excellence of coastal projects well praised BY JAMES TAYLOR COMMUNITY groups on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula are among those honoured in this year’s Victorian Coastal Awards for Excellence. The annual awards, presented earlier this month, are hosted by the Victorian Coastal Council and are in their 14th year. The Barwon Coast Committee of Management won one of the seven categories, taking out the Education Award for its Kids @ The Coast program. The Ocean Grove branch of the Disabled Surfers Association was a joint winner of the Community Action and Partnerships category for its Putting Smiles on Dials project. The Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee received a special commendation in the Coastal Building and Design category for the Split Point Lookout, and was a finalist in the Coastal Planning and Management category for its coastal management plan. The Corangamite Catchment Management Authority’s efforts to protect Orange-bellied Parrots made it a finalist in the Natural Environment category. Victorian Coastal Council

chairman Jon Hickman said the awards were an ideal opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the people who care for Victoria’s coast. “Thousands of volunteers and professionals work hard for our magnificent coast and we are grateful for their expertise, time and passion,” Mr Hickman said. “I congratulate all those who have been nominated for the Victorian Coastal Awards for Excellence, and those who have received awards this year.” Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said looking after the coast was a shared responsibility with the community, government and business all having a role to play. “About 9,000 Victorians are involved in caring for the coast through volunteer groups, committees of management or coastal boards. “These people work hard to champion, conserve and manage the coast, and their work is invaluable.” During the awards event, Mr Smith also launched the state government’s draft Victorian Coastal Strategy and encouraged people to submit feedback.

A good legacy GEELONG Legacy was extremely fortunate this year to have Chris Scott, the coach of the Geelong Football Club, give up his valuable time in the finals lead-up to launch Legacy Week. Chris is no stranger to Legacy and he spoke highly about Legacy activities that he was involved in as a boy along with his siblings. Their father Colin was a member of the Australian Air Wing in Vietnam. He was the first member of that unit to be awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for the rescue of American soldiers under heavy fire. Portarlington resident Elisabeth Clifton is an active member of the Bellarine Laurel Widows Club. Her late husband Peter also served in Vietnam. He was a well known medic at Nui Dat in charge of medical helicopter evacuations. Geelong Legacy, with responsibility for 1,600 widows across the Geelong region, is the second oldest Legacy Club in Australia. With on-going public support, the Geelong Club has served widows and their dependants for the last 88 years.

The write of Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life BY TIFFANY PILCHER FOUR-TIME equestrian Olympian and Bellarine resident Mary Hannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story could fill a library of books but she has condensed her remarkable life journey into just one to be released on October 12. Her book, A Long Rein, covers her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story and her own including her many triumphs and heartaches. Ms Hanna discusses losing her first husband in a tragic car accident, battling to save her horses, her business and her life in the bushfires of Ash Wednesday, and the many personal and professional challenges she faced during her Olympic campaigns. She originally tried to write of her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Champion Olympic horse rider Mary Hanna is about to release her first book filled with incredible stories of extraordinary lifelong love affair with the German naval officer who captained the Kormoran, the cruiser her personal life and career.

responsible for Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst-ever naval disaster. However, the more she researched the story the more she realised she was entwined in it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entire story evolved gradually, as I grew older I became more fascinated with my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story and I kept getting fed stories and I kept asking questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more I learned of the love affair and her life the more I understood just how much of an influence she has had on me,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ms Hanna lives on the Bellarine and works as a dressage horse trainer at her state-of-the-art facility, Statene Park. She is now training for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;if luck is with me and my horse and I stay healthy then I would certainly hope to qualify once again.â&#x20AC;? A Long Rein will be available in all Horseland stores and online from statenepark.com.au.

Protect the coast with a GORCC grant BY JAMES TAYLOR PROJECTS that protect coastal environments or strengthen coastal communities in the Surf Coast have been encouraged to apply for their share of a $10,000 grant pool. Applications are now open for the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) coastal grants, which aim to support local groups and individuals in helping to care for the coast. The grants were previously administered through the Surf Coast Shire’s small grants program but will now be offered by GORCC as a separate, coastal-focused funding opportunity each year. To be eligible, projects must have a coastal focus and be related to the 37 kilometres of Crown foreshore land managed by GORCC between

Torquay and Lorne. Groups can apply for up to $2,500 to fund the projects. GORCC community liaison manager Jane Rowlands said the grants were open to any community or non-government group undertaking a coastal project or initiative. “By providing financial support to important coastal projects we hope to encourage coastal protection and enhancement. “Collaboration with the community results in the best outcomes for our coast.” GORCC’s previous grant rounds have funded a diverse range of projects, ranging from the procurement of tools and cigarette butt bins to weed control, revegetation, educational projects and coastal events. Jan Juc Coast Action (JJCA) is

one of the community groups that has benefited from the coastal grants program in previous years. JJCA chairman Luke Hynes said the funding had gone towards vital conservation activities. “With the help of the coastal grant, we were able to perform weed control on the Jan Juc cliff tops and adjacent nature strips. “Grants like these are extremely beneficial to the work of local volunteers and community groups, as funds and supplies are limited.” He said JJCA would again seek funds to support the management of rare and endangered flora species present on the Jan Juc clifftops. Applications close on October 18. Head to gorcc.com.au/aboutus/190 for more information or to apply.

Have your say on a switch in energy policy BY JAMES TAYLOR THE state government has unveiled a way for consumers to directly pass on their concerns about electricity and gas. Earlier this month, Minister for Energy and Resources Nicholas Kotsiras announced the upgrade of the state government’s SwitchOn website. By visiting switchon.vic.gov.au and clicking the blue Energy Concerns button, consumers now

have the opportunity to submit their concerns, suggestions, feedback and ideas for improvement in relation to energy matters in Victoria. The feature on the SwitchOn website will be enabled for the next three months and takes the form of a basic survey, allowing consumers to enter their details and simply list their concern, issue or suggestion. Mr Kotsiras said it was a chance for people to detail any specific energy problems they had encountered.

“It is the most direct way to make sure the Coalition government is aware of issues that you are facing.” Mr Kotsiras said that after collecting feedback he would ask the Department of State Development Business and Innovation to identify themes, issues and solutions to address the concerns raised by consumers. “Unless I am aware of specific consumer concerns then it is very difficult to consider options for improvement in the future..

“The Coalition government engages with key energy stakeholder groups regularly, but there is nothing like giving people the chance to make their point directly to us. “I want to make sure that consumers feel they have a voice on energy matters, because it is a critical area in which we all have a stake.” The SwitchOn website also contains energy and appliance calculators, details on smart meters, a list of the top 10 ways to save power and information on flexible pricing.

Building support for Tutungi and McGrath BY JAMES TAYLOR THE building community of Geelong has rallied to build a home in Armstrong Creek to be sold at auction to raise funds towards the recovery efforts of footballers Casey Tutungi and Tim “Bluey” McGrath. Warralily, Urbanedge Homes, Shojun Concrete and Gartland Real Estate are working in collaboration with local businesses to make the idea become a reality, with all profits to be shared between the two causes. The Urbanedge home – to be located in the Warralily Coast estate at 7 Rainford Place – will be

a single storey, four bedroom house with a theatre room, alfresco dining and an open living plan. Warralily director Sean Duke said the project was representative of the empathetic and generous attitudes of the local community. “The Geelong community is renowned for the support it provides for those in need and this is no exception. With most Geelong tradies playing footy on a Saturday afternoon, they are all hopeful to lend a hand. “With two great causes underpinning the auction, it should spark interest in a number of potential bidders on the day and more importantly, the proceeds made will contribute extensively to the

finances for ongoing future treatment.” Shojun Concrete boss Simon Farrell said the fundraiser was an obvious cause to support, and was excited for the project to begin. “Unfortunately, both guys are a harsh reminder that misfortune can strike anyone at any time, and we are just excited and privileged to be able to help in any way we can. “The trades community has been deeply affected by the news of Casey and Bluey, and to be able to band together to make a significant difference in their lives is pretty special.” Tutungi has been formally diagnosed as a

quadriplegic after a collision with an opponent during a game in June. McGrath, who played more than 200 games for the Cats, is suffering from stage three melanoma. The date for the auction has been set for November 23, and the public is urged to show support for the project. To donate to the Casey Tutungi Appeal, head to caseytutungi.com/donate-online. To donate to McGrath’s cause, contact the Geelong Football Club at geelongcats.com.au. K-Rock is also supporting McGrath on Grand Final eve with all proceeds from their live panel show and auction.

Warralily, Urbanedge Homes, Shojun Concrete and Gartland Real Estate are working in collaboration with local businesses to build and sell a home in Warralily Coast to raise money for Casey Tutungi and Tim McGrath.

Alcoa volunteer Peter Mannix helps out at Anglesea’s Camp Wilkin.

Alcoa lends a hand at Camp Wilkin BY JAMES TAYLOR VOLUNTEERS from Alcoa pitched in last week to assist staff at Anglesea’s Camp Wilkin to complete maintenance tasks that were essential to the everyday running of the not-for-profit camping grounds. Jobs done by the nine volunteers in the half-day project included painting, replacing timber bollards along paths and general gardening such as clearing weeds, spreading mulch and general clean-up duties. Anglesea power station manager Talis Steele said places such as Camp Wilkin relied heavily on public donations and fundraising activities to continue their work, and the company was delighted to be involved in helping to improve the look and feel of the park. Camp Wilkin sits on over six hectares of land just off the Great Ocean Road near Anglesea. The camp offers a range of programs tailored for schools, community groups and churches with quality facilities, experiences and caring staff in a

relaxed atmosphere. Camp Wilkin business manager Don Kenny said the camp was designed to help take full advantage of both the local setting and wider coastal environment. “Our staff work with many different groups, including children at risk programs, and we are lucky to have their experience. “We thank Alcoa for their assistance which allows us to continue to provide these important programs.” The project was facilitated by Karingal through its BacLinks initiative, a service that brokers relationships between businesses and community groups, identifying needs, matching appropriate partners and coordinating and reporting on activities. Other recent BacLinks projects in the Geelong area include the Y Chef Cooking Challenge for VET students, the Workplace Big Day Out introduction to employee volunteering and the Big Boys Don’t Cry: But They Should mental health forum for men.

On the Garage Sale Trail BY DEAN WEBSTER LAST week three local mayors along with regional partners launched the Garage Sale Trail that will take place on October 26. The national day of buying, selling and old school social networking comes to our region as part of 2,000 garage sales anticipated to happen across Victoria. Garage Sale Trail aims to promote re-use, reduce waste to landfill, unite communities and stimulate local economies. It is free to get involved and registration is open to anyone who’s up for a day of fun, including households, schools, community groups and charities. Buyers can plan their shopping day by searching what sales are nearby and creating a personalised treasure trail of sales and items to check out on their mobile phone on the big day. Barwon Regional Waste Management Group and member councils, the Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Colac Otway Shire

and Surf Coast Shire are all pleased to be participating in the Garage Sale Trail for the first time this year. In launching the Garage Sale Trail, event ambassador Hugo T Armstrong shared many of his past experiences and purchases at garage sales. “I get many comments on the old TAA bag I carry around. “It contained cans of paint but I only wanted the bag, so I bought it and threw the paint out, the bag is a classic,” Mr Armstrong said. “I also bought an old clock for a few dollars that I had valued in the hundreds, there’s always a great bargain and you meet very interesting people, I urge everyone to get involved.” Barwon Regional Waste Management Group chairperson and Geelong councillor Andy Richards said that the Garage Sale Trail provides an opportunity to promote reusing items and reducing waste to landfill. Registration is via garagesaletrail.com.au and includes a seller webpage, as well as tips about how (L-R) Queenscliffe counillor Graham Christie, acting Geelong mayor Bruce Harwood, Geelong Cr Andy Richards, to grab a bargain. Enzo Bruscella, Hugo T Armstrong, Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker, and Colac-Otway mayor Lyn Russell.

Inclusive good books for public libraries BY RACHEL DELANY PARENTS, families and friends of lesbians and gays (PFLAG) are donating 10 books to schools and public libraries across the Greater Geelong region. These books reflect sexual orientation and gender identity, friendly to those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex (GLBTI). The more access young people have to information reflecting their lived experiences, the better their self confidence and sense of belonging. Through education and access to information the book project aims to reduce homophobic and

transphobic bullying, which can often result in longterm psychological and physical damage as well as high numbers of youth suicide. People who are GLBTI can be particularly vulnerable in regional areas where narrow community attitudes can dominate. Cr Jan Farrell, portfolio holder for community safety, education and youth said the books would be a valuable resource. “For young people who think they may be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex or questioning their sexuality or gender, it is often a struggle to find age-appropriate literature that

reflects their feelings,” she said. “Within a school library setting, the PFLAG Geelong book project gives access to fiction and non-fiction titles which explore these issues, thereby allowing young people to feel as validated as their straight peers. “Congratulations to all those involved in getting this project off the ground – by empowering young people with greater access to important information, these books could very well save a life,” said Cr Farrell. Chair of the Geelong Regional Library Corporation Cr Andy Richards said that the library

is very pleased to be a partner in this important initiative. “Public libraries are for everyone and it is essential that all people are able to find material in their library which reflects people like themselves as the heroes and main protagonists of stories.” A PFLAG spokesperson said it was a groundbreaking project and the uptake from schools had outweighed initial expectations. “PFLAG Geelong is a fantastic community resource for parents, friends and families and this project will help us to continue and build on our important community support work.”

news 21 Access granted for environmental projects Tuesday 24 September 2013

BY JAMES TAYLOR COMMUNITY environment groups in the Corangamite region will share in $204,000 of funding as part of $2 million distributed through the Victorian Landcare Grants. The state government funding, distributed through the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA), will help local Landcare groups carry out on-ground environmental projects to improve the health of the region’s land and waterways. The Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network (SCIPN) is one of the 13 groups to receive a grant, and will use it in a joint project with Geelong Landcare to build community capacity to reduce the impact of vermin such as rabbits on agriculture and biodiversity. SCIPN rates the control and management of pests, plants and animals as one of its areas of focus and have run several associated events in the past, including last year’s rabbit control information field day in Freshwater Creek. Other supported projects through the grants include weed control programs, seed collection, planting Indigenous vegetation and protecting remnant vegetation and wetlands. Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said the grants would give Landcare groups across Corangamite the support needed for projects on public and private land, and each project would assist in protecting and enhancing their local environment. “I congratulate these Landcare volunteers for the important contribution they make in protecting and enhancing our environment at the grassroots level. “Each project shows a strong commitment to improving the environment for the benefit of the community and demonstrates the inspiring volunteer spirit that is at the very heart of Landcare.” To strengthen the volunteer movement, the state

government is also providing 34 Victorian Landcare grants to local groups to ensure a strong Landcare base and enable volunteers to focus on their hand-on environment role.

ADVERTORIAL

Barwarre Gardens - perfect retirement village living COME and see how perfect retirement village living is by joining new and future residents of Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village for a free barbeque lunch, giveaways and entertainment. Hot Club Swing and local dance group Geelong Jukebox Rockers will be highlights on the open day on October 5, between 11am and 2pm – bring a friend! In a very short time, stage one of Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village has almost sold out. Several of the buyers have now moved in to take up residence at the village. Since the opening of display units in November 2012, sales have been unprecedented with buyers saying they love the space, storage, kitchens and, in fact, everything about them. Many years of careful planning into the well designed and considered retirement village offers residents a variety of low maintenance and affordable home designs in a range of styles and sizes to suit almost every over-55 buyer. The attention to detail in the development is clear with stage one selling quickly and stage two, now under construction with several of the homes already sold off the plan. A very comfortable and well equipped temporary community centre has been provided to ensure that new residents of Barwarre Gardens have a relaxing and inviting meeting place for activities, functions and to have a cup of tea or

coffee with friends. Residents enjoy the much anticipated monthly outings to interesting and diverse places where they can relax in the company of others while taking in the sites and catching up over a delicious meal. Development of the new community centre will commence as part of stage two. “Moving into a retirement village allows residents the freedom to mingle with people their own age and join in activities such as barbeques, social drinks or a spot of lunch with their neighbours and friends,” Barwarre Gardens village manager Sue Cobb said. “Instead of spending time on maintenance or mowing lawns around the home, Barwarre Gardens residents have more time to learn a craft or language or enjoy hobbies like walking, Tai Chi, singing and golf. “They can go on a holiday, locking and leaving their home without worrying about its security. Village life is all about doing as much or as little as you like.” It is no wonder so many people can’t wait to move into Barwarre Gardens. If you would like to learn more about how to join them in their exciting new lifestyle call in to the sales office (located next to the temporary community centre) at 89 Barwarre Road, Marshall, call David Walker on 1300 472 424 or visit barwarregardens.com.au.

Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village residents are loving everything about the village’s display units.

Team up for local relays THE Surf Coast’s third annual Relay For Life weekend is fast approaching and the organising committee is calling for teams to register for the event. The 24-hour relay will be held at the Surf Coast Shire’s recreational precinct over the weekend of November 30-December 1. Committee chairman Darrel Brewin said the relay capitalises on fundraising efforts by teams within the community to fund Cancer Council Victoria’s programs and its research efforts to beat the disease. “Everyone knows someone who has suffered because of cancer. Those who have had their lives cut short, survivors or carers,” he said. “Relay gives us all a chance to show our support by doing laps of the oval with friends, family and others who will come to enjoy the live entertainment

program and the other activities we have planned. “There will be great acts on stage and lots of fun for the kids.” Team captains are being invited to register for the Surf Coast Relay For Life at Torquay RACV Resort from 7.30pm to 9.30pm on September 27. There will be a briefing session and information on what teams will need to know before the relay gets underway at noon on the Saturday. For more information, contact Darrel or Pamela Brewin on 5261 5229. This year’s Bellarine Relay for Life is being held on November 9-10 at Collendina Recreation Reserve, Minerva Close, Ocean Grove. Sarah Mayhew is the coordinator and can be reached by calling 1300656585 or emailing bellarine@relayforlife.org.au.

Australia’s top chefs get DAFT BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Scout leader Danny Vriens (far left) and local Scouts and Scout leaders getting ready to board a flight to Nepal at Melbourne Airport on Wednesday. Their trip was made possible by a huge fundraising effort by local businesses and community members.

FOOD and wine lovers will have the chance to sample the finest food and wine from the country’s most prestigious chefs at Drink Arts Food Torquay (DAFT) next month. The DAFT Degustation Dinner is the festival’s premier food event with award winning chefs presenting a five course degustation menu with matching local wines. The five participating chefs hold six Chef Hat awards between them and project manager Katrina White said this is the first time a food event of this standard has been held in Torquay. “This is a first for the Surf Coast, normally we would travel to Melbourne for triple the price. “We are so lucky to be spoilt with these award winning chefs coming to us, an opportunity like this only happens once in a blue moon.”

The award winning chefs have headed top restaurants including Crown Casino’s Number 8, PM24, Gladioli, Number One RACV Torquay, Estelle and the infamous three hatted Vue Du Monde. Rita Erlich, one of Australia’s most renowned food and wine writers will host the event. The DAFT extravaganza weekend will be held from October 11 to 13, focusing on promoting local produce, beverages, art and music at various Torquay venues. The DAFT Degustation Dinner will be held on October 11 at RACV Resort Torquay’s Great Ocean Road Ballroom from 6.30pm to 11pm. Tickets are $190 per person and can be purchased individually or in tables of up to 10. Head to daftorquay.com where tickets are available online only.

Businesses back Scouts aid mission BY TIFFANY PILCHER

A GROUP of intrepid adventurers from the First Torquay scouts group jetted off to Nepal last week thanks to the generosity of the local business community. More than 70 businesses donated big ticket items for a silent auction as part of the scout’s fundraising trivia night last month. Prizes included rashies signed by Kelly Slater and Stephanie Gilmore from Quiksilver, a stay and spa package from Wyndham Resort Torquay, tickets to The Blues Train and more. The event was held at Torquay’s Grant Pavillion and raised $6,500 to assist the scouts with necessary items for their expedition. Scouts committee member Martin Duke said the trip would have

been impossible without the support of local businesses and the wider community. “We were overwhelmed with the generosity of the local community, businesses and organisations. “The night really exceeded our expectations and we’re very thankful to those who helped. “With their assistance we raised enough money for the trip to go ahead, which will not only benefit the scouts but many Nepalese people also.” The scouts left for Nepal on Wednesday for a hiking and community aid adventure. They will spend 10 days trekking and completing various community projects, including supplying school stationary, hygiene products and protective sunglasses to villages and schools along the way.

A group of Bellbrae Primary School students gave up their favourite things for the 40 Hour Famine challenge this month to raise community awareness and funds to fight world hunger. More than 50 students participated and raised a total of $6,700 for global aid charity World Vision. Bellbrae Primary School junior Red Cross group leader Nicole Beith said students had the option to give up food, technology, furniture or even talking for 40 hours. “We decided that we'd love to get as many students involved as possible to join the fight against global hunger, I’m thrilled with their amazing effort,” she said. The junior Red Cross group also held food stalls over two days selling sweet treats made by parents which raised $1,500 towards the total.

Mixed season for Otway Coast irrigators BY JAMES TAYLOR IRRIGATORS in the Otway Coast Basin have experienced a mixed season, according to the latest annual water report from Southern Rural Water. The basin had a drier than expected autumn with well below average rainfall but this turned around markedly with heavy to very heavy rainfall in

winter, providing regular pulses of water in all the rivers and tributaries. There were no restrictions on the Gellibrand and Carlisle rivers or Lake Purrumbete, but the Curdies River faced a total pumping ban for 86 days between early January and the middle of May. The total volume taken by river licence holders was less than the drought years or

the previous summer. Irrigators took 698 megalitres from rivers and creeks across the basin, compared to 998 megalitres the previous year, and 943 megalitres in the drought year of 2008-09. Groundwater levels across the region are relatively stable, with some slight declines showing in some areas, and slight increases in others. Groundwater usage in the area was 4,265 megalitres for the season, compared to 4,189 megalitres the previous year, and 3,953 megalitres in 2008-09. The Otway Coast Basin includes all of the small

rivers between Torquay and Peterborough that flow to the coast from the Otway Ranges. Southern Rural Water general manager of groundwater and rivers Craig Parker said the local water report had been mailed to all licence holders in the region and provided a snapshot of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening with local water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have also included graphs from local state observation bores to show how groundwater levels have moved over time, as well as information on water trading in the area.â&#x20AC;?

BUSINESSES have the opportunity to review and, where required, improve their environmental performance ahead of a likely site inspection from an environmental watchdog within the next year. Environmental Protection Authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (EPA) Annual Compliance Plan has been released and businesses are encouraged to prepare. Field-based inspections, desktop assessments and covert surveillance are all compliance measures. Up to 3,000 field-based inspections are planned. Field resources will be targeted to areas posing the greatest risk to the environment and community. There are six key areas the EPA will be focusing on including: contaminated environments, landfills, stormwater contamination in urban areas, stockpiling of materials and illegal dumping of waste, residential encroachment in

industrial areas and organics. Specifically, the team focussing on illegal dumping will hone in on industrial waste management within the construction, demolition and excavation sector. Inspections will begin at site level. Between now and July 2015, EPA will also inspect all licensed sites to check compliance. For those businesses that have not already been inspected, there is a high likelihood that they will be inspected imminently. EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy orients around prevention and a best practice framework. Director of environmental regulation Chris Webb encourages businesses to integrate environmental best practice guidelines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With better environmental compliance comes less need for EPA enforcement action and a better environment for all Victorians,â&#x20AC;? Mr Webb said. For more information and all updates head to epa.vic.gov.au.

Platinum pool splashes out for its birthday BY JAMES TAYLOR LEISURELINK celebrated its third birthday this month, and the aquatic and recreation centre marked the occasion with a range of fun, health and fitnessrelated events last week. Free activities at the popular Waurn Ponds facility included fitness tests, information and practical workshops, adult swim and stroke lessons, group sessions and hearing checks. Cr John Irvine, who holds the portfolio holder for sport and recreation, said the week was an

inexpensive opportunity to see the fantastic facility at its best and the perfect chance to try something new. He said while Leisurelink celebrated its birthday, the council was reflecting on another successful year. “Leisurelink has achieved several milestones in the past year and the city is very proud of the high profile facility. “Leisurelink’s achievements include winning the prestigious Facility Management Award from Aquatics and Recreation Victoria, reaching platinum

pool status the last two years and continuing to attract high profile athletes as members.” The centre – which closed its original Belmont location and re-opened in 2010 – has close to 9,000 members, 2,500 Learn to Swim students and recorded just under one million visits in the 20122013 period. Cr Irvine said the future for Leisurelink looked bright as the centre had plans to expand. “A new outdoor exercise area will be opening soon and gym equipment will be upgraded over the next year.”

Learn to Swim classes for term four start on October 7, but enrolments are taken all year round. The classes are designed to introduce all ages to the world of aquatics and can be taken from as early as six months of age. Participants will learn water safety and survival skills and develop stroke techniques in a fun and progressive environment. Head to the council’s Swim Sport and Leisure network page at geelongaustralia.com.au/ssl for more information.

Bellarine foreshore management

A hundred years, thousands of stories

Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

As a long term member of Friends of Bellarine Hills (FoBH) and Foreshore, I write to disagree with “Reluctant goodbye” (Letters, September 10) and to disagree with the suggestion made therein to place the management of our foreshore into the hands of the City of Greater Geelong. This letter was written by FoBH and Foreshore but as I was not present at that meeting, this letter does not have my support. I agree that the Bellarine Bayside must continue to support its caravan parks so income generated is available for the broader Bellarine foreshore. Take a walk along Portarlington foreshore. Evidence of active environmental management is clear, with tree plantings of Indigenous species to protect erosion and well maintained areas for public use. It is foolish to think that Geelong council would care for our part of the coast with the same enthusiasm as our own organisation in Bellarine Bayside.

Ninety nine years ago, just after the outbreak of World War I, Red Cross began its humanitarian work in Australia, with volunteers putting together comfort parcels for soldiers. Nearly a century later, Red Cross has found a place in the hearts and minds of most Australians and we are thrilled to launch a major project to kick off our Centenary celebrations. We’re collecting the personal stories of the people who have shared in a remarkable history: the power of humanity in action. My Red Cross story dates back to 1915. My family received a letter from Red Cross informing them of the sad news that my grandfather’s brother had been killed in Gallipoli. I still have the letter and cherish it as it represents a piece of my family’s history. For many people Red Cross has become a part of their family’s history too. Since its beginnings on 13 August 1914, Red Cross has grown to be at the forefront of reconnecting families torn apart by war and conflict, helping older Australians to remain living independently in their own homes, helping people with mental illness reconnect with their communities, helping school kids get a healthy breakfast before they start their school day and much more. Red Cross has become the world’s largest humanitarian organisation through the simple yet powerful act of people helping people. Now is the time for generations of volunteers, members and supporters, the thousands of people who have helped and been helped by Red Cross, both in Australia and overseas, to tell their own stories in their own words, in their own ways. Please visit redcross.org.au/centenary and share in our Centenary celebrations.

Dolores Pearson Friends of the Bellarine Hills and Foreshore member, Portarlington

Our seniors deserve better Dear Editor, The Sands Action Group’s “Save The Sands Resort – Say no to an aged care facility at The Sands” campaign lacks logic. A renovated resort would make an ideal retirement community, bringing sorely needed good paying (health care) professional jobs to Surf Coast Shire. Our shire has far too many minimum wage jobs. I’ve heard the action group say their property values will fall. Conversely, the proposed renovated facility will attract well paid professionals to their neighbourhood. The staff and seniors will make compassionate new neighbours that boost our local retail and restaurant revenues. We have a growing senior population that would love to remain here with some assisted care, rather than move away. The Sands is the perfect peaceful, out-of-the-way location that would bring much joy to seniors. The proposed retirement community will not be a hospital ward. I have an 82-year old auntie with a slight dementia problem living in a similar assistedliving facility in California. It is called Oakmont at Escondido Hills. I would encourage shire residents and staff to view it online (oakmontofescondidohills.com) to see how wonderful and vibrant such a place is. It provides an active assisted lifestyle with individual apartments, elegant common living areas, a movie theatre, swimming pool, spa and fireplaces, lovely grounds with many and varied daily social activities to build friendships. My auntie used to have a beautiful San Diego coast home that she never wanted to leave, but when she moved into Oakmont, she called it a landlubber ocean cruise liner where every day is a holiday and absolutely loves it there. Surely our seniors who have built our country deserve a better attitude from our community than a push away. John De Witt Torquay

17). It is frustrating and sad. It’s not just the small birds suffering – when the old conifers on the highway just outside Torquay were removed by VicRoads, they chose a similar time of year. They gave a reason, it was not an answer worth remembering. Not only are we destroying their habitat, many birds are finding it more and more difficult to find food. Robin Irwin Torquay

Women encouraged to stand Dear Editor, Geelong women interested in good governance, local accountability, civic leadership and strategic development for overall community wellbeing are encouraged to stand in the forthcoming mayoral byelection in the City of Greater Geelong. A successful woman candidate would join the other 30 women mayors who fill 38 per cent of the mayoral posts in Victoria’s 79 councils, including in Geelong’s neighbouring councils Colac-Otway, Golden Plains, Surf Coast and Queenscliffe. Following the 2012 elections, all Victorian councils, for the first time, have at least one woman councillor. Geelong Women In Local Democracy (WILD) supports the Women’s Charter principles of gender equity, diversity and active citizenship and looks forward to another first in November 2013 – election by the people of a female mayor in the City of Great Geelong.

Black smog days Cheers and jeers Dear Editor, Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up at last weekend’s BFL finals played at Spring Creek oval in Torquay. A wooden spoon goes to the organisers for their disregard of the adjoining Spring Creek Nature Reserve. As the local footy finals get bigger each year (no doubt bringing with it greater takings at the gate for the organisers) so too does the price paid by our local creek reserve. I ask that the organisers educate their fans and take it upon themselves to clean up the cans, bottles, six pack rings, cigarette butts, cardboard beer packaging and other mess that still litters our creek three days after the big day. Improve your act on and off the field. Phil Avery Torquay

The suffering of birds great and small Dear Editor, I’m sure many would agree with you Judy (“Coastal tea tree removal on beach front”, Letters, September

Dear Editor, The last few weeks we have had some black smog days in Anglesea, with mixed messages from our power station as to why it is occurring. Companies digging out coal have spent $30 billion on scrubber technology (pollution reduction) in the USA for the benefit of American health. Why can’t our American power station (Alcoa) spend money on scrubber technology for the benefit of Anglesea residents’ health? Did anyone happen to take a photo of all the black pollution? Is anyone else concerned about the chemicals in the pollution that are not visible? Just a simple Google search on coal pollution and mental health was very concerning to me. Is this issue making our kids anxious? I have noticed that the issue of pollution is frequently appearing in their writing and artwork at school. Do any other residents think we need better monitoring and faster communication about days with dangerously high sulphur dioxide and (even more concerning) dangerously high levels of particulates? What should we do about our school children and kinder children on these days? Do any other residents want our power station to install pollution reducing scrubber technology? Does anyone know who is in a level of government that can help us with this matter? Should it become a federal issue? Tabitha Lowdon Anglesea

Boozed will be busted YOUNG men who might be tempted to drink and drive over the Grand Final season are being targeted with an online infomercial made by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). Booze Busted highlights the expensive penalties for drink drivers and has been developed to specifically target men aged 18-29 who intentionally drink drive and have little regard for the law. The campaign will be advertised in pubs and drive through bottle shops, as well as hotel bathrooms and on posters in bars around Melbourne and in regional Victoria – you can view Booze Busted online at boozebusted.com. TAC senior manager of marketing Simon Strahan said close to a quarter (23 per cent) of Victorian road fatalities involve a driver or rider with a bloodalcohol concentration of greater than .05. “Almost 80 per cent of drink drivers killed are male with the majority aged 21 to 39 years,” Mr Strahan said. “These figures illustrate that drink driving is inherently a male problem but all of us, women included, cannot afford to ignore the warnings. “It’s simple – if you plan on drinking, don’t drive,

and if you’re driving, don’t drink.” In addition to the online campaign, the TAC is running its traditional Bloody Idiot campaign which features images of A bloody idiot’s mum, A bloody idiot’s girlfriend and A bloody idiot’s mate. It reminds Victorians that drink driving is socially unacceptable and potentially deadly. The campaign will also be present on advertising boards around the state with the Don’t Risk It message on one side, and standard beer measurements on the other. “We know this is an exciting time for local clubs and towns. “We ask all of you to plan your trips to and from the local footy ground before you leave home,” Mr Strahan said. “Catching a lift with a designated driver who isn’t drinking alcohol is a great example of planning ahead. “We ask everyone to take extra care and remember that if you drink and drive, you’re a bloody idiot.” Increasing awareness of drink driving risks is a key component of the Victorian government’s road safety strategy 2013-2022.

TAC senior manager of marketing Simon Strahan, TAC client Alex Wall and Victoria police inspector Tom McGillian address the media on drink drive campaigning and enforcement that will display throughout September.

Funding safety right way for highway THIS YEAR

LAST YEAR

A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.

MEMBER for Western Victoria David Koch recently announced $68,000 for road safety improvements on the Midland Highway at the intersection with Raven Street, in Geelong West. Mr Koch said that, due to sun glare and the built up nature of the intersection, motorists are taking risks when driving through the intersection, endangering other motorists and pedestrians. “Improvements such as new signage, linemarking and lane reconfiguration will highlight the location of the intersection. “There will also be an increase to the red light phase on the traffic lights to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and drivers. “The Midland Highway is a major commuter, freight and tourist route between

Geelong and Ballarat. “The area has a history of crashes with four in the five year period ending 2012, two of which resulted in serious injury. “The great thing about the Safer Road Infrastructure program (SRIP) is that it is targeted to areas where it can have a specific and immediate safety benefit.” An evaluation into the effectiveness of the program by the Monash University Accident Research Centre indicated that the program is producing a reduction of 31 per cent for all casualty crashes. “We’ve had significant improvements in making roads safer and we need to keep working hard to ensure that we stay a world leader in road safety.”

A bloody idiot’s girlfriend.

The SRIP funding, provided by the Transport Action Commission, is the centrepiece of Victoria’s new road safety strategy 2013-22 and action plan 2013-16, which includes a new and stronger focus on measuring and reducing serious injuries. Mr Koch said the state government has significantly boosted the SRIP funding to $1 billion over 10 years, an increase of more than 30 per cent per year, in a bid to reduce the risks to road users through vital safety improvements. “This funding boost will deliver improvements to 12 intersections and six lengths of road across the state where run-off-road crashes are occurring.” Work is expected to commence in early 2014 and will take about two months to complete.

Community to vote in support of cause THIS Christmas eftpos will donate up to $2 million to support a charity in their Giveback program. Surf Coast residents are asked to help choose how best this money could be placed in the community. Of the 40,000 people who voted in last year’s online poll, 30 per cent supported a charity that assisted people with disabilities. Last year, eftpos donated $1 million to Vision Australia to assist the fulfilment of the organisation’s aim to build a new seeing-eye dog breeding and training centre in Melbourne. In 2011, $1 million was donated to The Salvos for a number of community programs.

People are asked to support the Giveback program by pressing cheque or savings when using eftpos. “The eftpos Giveback tradition is in its third year and we are looking to double the donation value up to $2 million,” eftpos managing director Mr Bruce Mansfield said. “It is important that the community has a say.” There are eight areas that have been selected as areas to be supported: sick children, medical research, suicide, disability, disadvantage, homelessness, environment and animal welfare. Voting will close on October 12. For more information and to vote for this year’s Giveback recipient go to eftposgiveback.com.au.

Spring firewood season delayed BY JAMES TAYLOR WET weather has delayed the start to the spring firewood collection season in the Grampians and Barwon south west areas of Victoria. Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) land and fire regional manager Peter Codd said heavy rain during winter meant there would be no firewood collection in any of the designated collection areas in the state’s south west until further notice due to wet ground conditions, environmental considerations and public safety. “Collection areas will be checked and assessed regularly. “We’ll open them progressively throughout the season as soon as ground conditions allow.” People can get more information or updates regarding designated firewood collection area times by visiting their local DEPI office, going online, or by phoning the DEPI Customer Service Centre.

“Once these sites are open it will be legal for people to collect firewood for domestic use until the spring firewood collection season ends on November 30.” DEPI and Parks Victoria staff patrol parks, forests and reserves take a zero tolerance approach to those who are breaking firewood collection laws. Firewood collection is only permitted during designated times of the year and from designated collection areas. Wood collected at these sites is for personal use only and cannot be sold. Official signs will display the rules and collection limits. Typical on the spot fines are around $577. Offences that go to court may be liable for fines up to $7,218, one year imprisonment or both. For more information and updates, head to depi.vic.gov.au/forestry-and-land-use/forestmanagement/firewood or call DEPI customer service centre on 136 186.

Sing it, here comes the fun

Penny Larkins and Carl Pannuzzo to Lead a Singing Workshop at Singing for Fun in Bellbrae.

BELLBRAE’S Singing for Fun will host Penny Larkins and Carl Pannuzzo for a special community singing workshop on September 27. Two of Australia’s most beautiful voices, Penny Larkins and Carl Pannuzzo find no greater joy than sharing music both in performance and teaching mode. They have entertained audiences all over Australia from Denmark, Western Australia to Palm Creek, Queensland and have recently come back from a tour of the United Kingdom (with harmony group Salvation Jane) and Europe. Mr Pannuzzo and Ms Larkins believe we all have music in us.

They will be teaching participants of the workshop how to forget any blocks and fears around making music and remembering how to listen. Ms Larkins has spent much of her life in training of some sort – a professional actor and qualified music and drama teacher – whereas Mr Pannuzzo’s journey as a self taught musician is the product of what knowledge he has gathered along the way. They both are well known in the Australian music scene, performing with groups Totally Gourdgeous, Salvation Jane, Checkerboard Lounge as well as collaborations and performances with Fred Smith, Bill

News in brief Torquay Surf Life Saving Club Grand Final fiesta TORQUAY Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) invites members and friends to celebrate Grand Final day, with the best views on the coast and some great camaraderie. Club members have a working bee from 9am and then everyone can kick back and watch the game from midday with football food and drinks at bar prices. All are welcome to barrack for their teams and perhaps kick the footy at half time or even go for a paddle. A club spokesperson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to seeing you there on Saturday 28 Septemberâ&#x20AC;?. Torquay SLSC is on Surf Beach Road in Torquay.

THE City of Greater Geelong will take over the Ceres Temperance Hall following an approach from the existing owners, the Barrabool Blue Ribbon Society. Last week, councillors voted to take ownership of the hall after the community group said it was no longer in a position to manage the 150-year-old building. Deakin ward councillor Ron Nelson said he was delighted that the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownership role would ensure protection of the hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important that buildings to be preserved are judged on their merits, and the Ceres Hall qualifies

as a building of considerable local significance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well as guaranteeing the hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survival, councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownership of the building gives the local Ceres community members an opportunity to involve themselves in the ongoing activities of this important facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hall currently serves the community as a venue for the vibrant local theatre production company, the Theatre of the Winged Unicorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hall also serves as the venue for a broad range of community activities, and provides toilet facilities for congregation members attending the adjacent local church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It plays a significant part in maintaining the essential character of Ceres.â&#x20AC;?

He said a building inspection report commissioned by the council had identified works that would be necessary to bring the structure up to existing council standards for community halls. The report identifies $175,000 in remedial works, and net annual operating costs of $11,500. The recommended building works will be referred to the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014/15 budget process. Cr Nelson said he was lobbying Heritage Victoria for funding assistance to help pay for the restoration works. He said council ownership of the hall would involve certain statutory obligations with regard to Heritage overlay.

Swinging to win BY TIFFANY PILCHER TORQUAY’S top golfers are knuckling down to qualify once again for the country’s top championships in the upcoming season. Elite amateur golfer Ben Eccles is heading to the Keppera Bowl Championship in Queensland next month in an effort to pre-qualify for the Australian Open Championship in November. Eccles, 18, from Torquay, has been training and competing full time since completing his VCE at Oberon High School last year but suffered a disappointing 21st place finish at the Mandurah Amateur Open in Western Australia last week.

“Conditions weren’t great and I didn’t do very well,” he said. “There were 35 kilometre an hour winds with gusts up to 60 kilometres an hour and rain on the first day, the second day was windy again and the final round on the last day was cancelled because of the weather – it wasn’t ideal. “With the extra training I can see an improvement in my game but I’m not seeing it come through at tournaments yet. “I just have to focus on putting what I am learning into practice, the plan now is to pre-qualify and get back on track.” Following the Australian Open Eccles is aiming

to be on form to defend his men’s New South Wales Amateur Championship title early next year. Jarrod Lyle is also preparing to move back into professional golf after beating leukaemia for the second time. Lyle is back on his home course at The Sands this month playing his first consecutive four rounds since the illness returned in March last year. The Professional Golfers Association tour player completed the fourth round on Thursday in preparation for the Australian Masters tournament in Melbourne in November and said he’s well on his way back to top form. “I’m at about 70 per cent right now but every day

Eccles and Lyle are teeing up for a bumper championship season

I play it gets better. “Those bad shots I’m hitting from being out of practice are starting to disappear.” The comeback is significant for Lyle who endured several rounds of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow transplants and months in remission to overcome the cancer which first affected him when he was only 17. “I’m excited to be back, I have been playing a lot but not seriously so this will really feel like a return for me. “My health has been ok so I wanted to get out here as quickly as possible, it’s good to be back doing what I love.”

Ben Eccles has his eyes set on another successful championship run this year.

A FEATURE of the course is the number of elevated greens that require plenty of thought when selecting your club. There are only 42 bunkers throughout the course which have been likened to sand belt bunkers, and coupled with eucalypt tree lined fairways combine to produce a stimulating round. Also there is the ever present resident population of eastern grey kangaroos which number approximately 300.

WHETHER it’s the moment guests enter the pro shop to be greeted by club professional Matt Milne and his knowledgeable staff, or out on the course, in the bar, gaming lounge or partaking of fine food from our head chef, Chris and his staff, any time spent at Portarlington is a most enjoyable experience. Santa Ana fairways in top condition at any time of the year beckon golfers to walk and marvel at the lushness and are challenged to conquer some holes that can make you smile, or conversely, vow to return and tidy up any mistakes that it cares to tempt the errant golfer. With improvements constantly implemented, from one visit to the next, the course can change often, however one constant is the care and professional attention the course is given by its

ground staff. Great value golf memberships are now available for anyone wishing to join the club. The Carnival of Golf, staged annually in August/September, is a must for any golfer, no matter what level. In 2012 we held our first ProAm event which went on to win us an Award at the Victoria Golf Industry Presentation Night, Best Regional Pro-Am Course of the Year. The event followed up in similar fashion winning the Regional Pro Am Course of the Year and the Regional Pro Am of the Year. The 2014 event will be held on March 6. In excess of $10,000 in prizes awaits winners in many different events. Do yourself a favour, make a booking for a round at Portarlington and see for yourself what all the hype is about, it may well be worth it.

It is difficult to single out any one act from next month’s Anglesea Music Festival that will stand out because the diversity of the lineup just won’t allow it. BY ALI DEANE BUT there’s no doubting Melbourne 14-piece The Dub Captains will be easily remembered after they hit Anglesea with their dynamic audio onslaught of rock-reggae. Formed in 2007 by three friends Jim Grimwade, Josh Bridges and Hamish Knight, the idea of a big band couldn’t be held back. The band grew to six, the word spread, new members jumped on board and the outfit became 14. A studio album later (Big Boomin Sci-Fi Unit, 2011) and The Dub Captains vocal onslaught, killer horns, duelling guitars, percussion and rhythm section has gained them the reputation around Melbourne as one of the most talented and enjoyable party bands. Their diverse musical backgrounds and broad repertoire crosses surf rock with traditional heavy dub, lo-fi love songs, reggae and Brazilian pop, with their signature sound of reverb drenched guitar, big horns and catchy melodies. “It’s pretty danceable stuff,” bassist Jim Grimwade said. “It’s great having such a big band, playing gigs, and having all the people up there. “And one good thing is there’s no shortage of songs. We mix it up and never get bored.” The Dub Captains only embarked on the festival scene last summer, and are gearing up for a range of east coast dates following their appearance at Angelsea. “We’re all looking forward to Anglesea; we’ve

been in the studio a lot, and we might even bring the boards and make it a bit of a holiday. “We’re also keen to catch Brian Cadd and many of the acts. Keshie are friends of ours so it’s going to be fun.” The Dub Captains join an illustrious lineup of acts at Anglesea Music Festival over the weekend of October 18-20, including Brian Cadd, Sandi Thom,

Damian Howard and The Ploughboys, Bowie Jane, The Little Stevies, The Diehard Dolls, Grand Soul Audio, The Sweethearts and many more. This year’s festival will also feature comedians, great food, market stalls, buskers, workshops, a busker competition and a new village hub location in the heart of Anglesea. Organisers have just released a new batch of

presale tickets at a discounted rate of $100 for a three day pass, after early bird tickets sold out. The new release is available until September 30 unless sold out. Head to angleseamusicfestival.com.au for more information, and grab your tickets at Anglesea Hotel or through Moshtix. Children under 12 are free with a ticketed adult.

Melbourne 14-piece The Dub Captains will hit Anglesea next month bringing a unique pseudo reggae to the third annual Anglesea Music Festival.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY

JON HELMER

It’s beer ‘n’ footy fest! YES it’s that grand time of year again with the big day fast approaching when we see the big men fly and as I write this article a week out from the game I’ve got absolutely no idea who’s made it through? Whichever way it has fallen let’s just hope it’s a great game and that the most deserving team wins (I would love to insert my team here). Of course, with all the excitement surrounding the day, the question will be asked by some if not many, “What am I gonna drink this Saturday at the barbeque/party?” A seriously vexing question for some, others dead easy – “Crownies thanks”. Now be that as it may, there are so many other great beers out there on the market these days, what with the whole craft brewing thing going on and gathering momentum, we are absolutely spoilt for choice. And as they sometimes say in footy when picking the best team from a full list, “It’s a great problem to have” and yes I even hear that the old Crownie is being marketed as a craft beer now... What? Wonders never cease. Anyway, there’s always something new happening on the craft beer scene and hopefully the new releases featured below will be out and available prior to Grand Final day. If not, then there’s always something else, maybe a bottle of French Champagne if your team’s playing, then whichever way the result goes, either way you still win, kinda? Hmmm, maybe I’m dreaming there, anyway c’mon the (insert your team here)!

Little Creatures IPA ($18 x 4 packs) The inventive crew at Little Creatures always produce a quality product and quite a bit of thought, patience and great brewing has gone into producing this fine new tasty India pale ale release. The beer’s colour is beautiful and golden with that tell-tale Little Creatures hoppiness upfront while the overall feel, weight and flavour profile on the palate is super refreshing. Definitely destined to be a hit this summer! While I’m at it, word has it that things are going well down at the Geelong operation so it won’t be long till we see the first “local” Little Creatures beers start to roll out, but patience is a virtue so, stay patient!

New Look Cascade Beers ($14 x 4 packs) Woah! The team at CUB have finally woken up to the fact that they’ve got a brewery in their portfolio steeped in history and begging to be called a “craft” producer, and even better it’s from Tasmania! And, for history buffs, not only is it Australia’s oldest brewery but it is also Australia’s second oldest business (good to see the colonists had their priorities in the right order, the first being the bank of New South Wales). The new look packaging of the Cascade beer range has certainly taken a massive step towards the old world look and feel (everything old is new again) with brown antique looking embossed bottles and labels evoking the style of yore. There’s the traditional line-up of premium lager, pale ale, and stout on offer alongside a now standard blonde wheat beer and a new addition to the range in a bright ale. All come in four packs with 16 bottles to the box instead of 24. Fans of the Cascade premium light fear not as this will still continue in its current form.

Explore the new era at Tigerfish BY ALI DEANE

New Tigerfish owner Naomi Singer inside the recently reopened shop and gallery space.

STEPPING out of the sun and into Tigerfish is like setting foot into a cool, coastal canopy filled with a collection of items, ready to be explored and poured over. From coastal fashion, to photography, literature, surfboards and hand planes, accessories and local art, Tigerfish on Bell Street in Torquay is a treasure trove of originality. With new owner Naomi Singer, the next era at Tigerfish is set to bring art lovers, surfers and shoppers a smorgasbord of new and established products, showcase talented and emerging artists and be a home to special events. Ms Singer, also a talented local photographer, loved the store from the beginning, and didn’t want to see it disappear when she heard it was on the market. “I’ve always loved founder Grant Forbes’ original motivation and ideas for opening the store; creating an environment to showcase talented artists. “Nat and Joel continued that momentum and made some wonderful changes and additions to the business. I want to continue doing that. “Galleries can be intimidating, but it is a relaxed space that has been created here to see and purchase art, and showcase quality garments. “I’m planning to keep it pretty similar to what it was, I’ve added a few female labels to balance it out, and will have a new artist every six weeks or so. “There’ll be Wax Off at Easter and other art exhibitions throughout winter.” Tigerfish officially re-opened under a fortnight ago and not only offers artists a place to show their work, but also has an array of brands for sale like Maison Scotch, Emeldo Design Jewellery, Fallen Broken

Street Headwear, Valley Eyewear, Raen sunglasses, Bellroy and Orchill wallets, Critical Slide Society, Brixton, Hippy Tree, Green Rock, Deus, and a range of surfboards by Cory Graham shapes, Bells Surf Wax and Leigh Stevens surfboards and hand planes. “It is definitely exciting, now that it’s finally open. We had a great first weekend, and I’m excited to learn and see what happens, and discover new local artists. “I’ve grown up in Torquay, and I think it is such an amazing place with such a diverse range of people. “I’m interested in seeing all forms of art. Anyone who has a talent, I’d be interested in hearing from.” Tigerfish, at 15 Bell Street Torquay, is now open seven days a week from 10am-5pm. Pop in to check out the latest products and explore some fresh local art.

Region’s wine plunged in its cool fruit BY ALI DEANE GEELONG is known for its acclaimed cool climate wines and has firmly established itself as one of Australia’s truly iconic wine regions. Now that spring is here, so is the start of the Geelong wine season, which sees multiple events held over the next few months – the 12th annual Toast to the Coast; the Great Geelong Wine Pour; and the Geelong Wine Show are all thanks to the Geelong Winegrowers Association (GWA). The season was officially opened at a special gala event by acting Geelong mayor Bruce Harwood, who ushered in another year of celebrating the wonderful wines of the Bellarine, Surf Coast and Moorabool Valley. Cr Harwood encouraged people to explore the region, sample the local wine and food and most of all enjoy what this unique part of the world has to offer. “We are very fortunate to have such spectacular scenery, award winning wines and sensational events such as Toast to the Coast on our doorstep,” Cr Harwood said. The Great Geelong Wine Pour showcases the region’s premium wines from September to November through special events, dinners and new wines at a selection of restaurants. It encourages food and wine lovers to sample the best on offer across the Bellarine, Moorabool Valley, Surf Coast and Otways

regions and encourages Melbourne restaurant goers to acquaint themselves with wines from this iconic region. The Geelong Wine Show brings together big and small producers from across the region showcasing the diversity of their wines, and takes place on October 16-17. The season culminates with the immensely popular Toast to the Coast, held over the Melbourne Cup Weekend, Nov 2-3. Lyndsay Sharp, owner of Leura Park Estate and Jack Rabbit Vineyard, and former chair of marketing for the GWA said Toast to the Coast is now a firmly entrenched tradition among the region’s food/wine lovers and the word about the quality of Geelong wines is spreading. More than 30 wineries will be showcasing their premium cool climate wines for pass holders to sample, and soak up a weekend of sensational wine, food, music and fun. There’s warmth in the air and new growth in the vineyards, so why not explore a new label, a winery or embrace one of the many exciting events. For more information head to toasttothecoast.com.au and winegeelong. com.au. Try one of the region’s acclaimed cool climate wines this Geelong wine season, at a range of special events from September to November.

What’s new at Boom Gallery this spring? BY ALI DEANE OWNERS Ren Inei and Kate Jacoby of Boom Gallery have just celebrated two years of uncovering and showcasing regional artists in their bright, contemporary gallery in Newtown. The space at Boom Gallery has recently been extended and the owners are excited to introduce a new menu by Rue Cler Market’s Andy Pye to their coffee offering, as well as new exhibitions. The menu features local produce presented in a simplistic yet elegant way. A menu for a long lunch to share can be arranged

as can canapés for special events. “Sourcing with locality in mind is the way to do it,” Mr Pye says. “The curators supply eggs from their garden, and we’ll serve them slow-cooked with local bacon. “The food we do is clean and crisp, nutritious and organic, but not minimal.” Boom’s latest exhibition features new paintings by Barwon Heads artist and graphic designer Chelsea Gustafsson, on display until October 12. Gustafsson’s Miniscapes detail the minutia of the everyday with delicacy and humour. Her painting style is intricately detailed and executed, and often includes unexpected elements such as hand stitching and embroidery, referencing the domestic arts. Mr Inei said regional artists are invited to join the thriving arts hub Studio 21. “We have several fabulous studio spaces available for hire; it’s really cool, there are about 12 visual artists and picture framers, and it is a real artist community there.” Boom Gallery and the coffee bar are open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 9.30am to 4pm with take away breakfast options from 8am. Boom Gallery is located at 11 Rutland Street, Newtown, Geelong.

Thorny Paradise forms part of Barwon Heads artist and graphic designer Chelsea Gustafsson’s Minsicapes exhibition at Boom Gallery. LEFT: Delicacies to devour at Boom Gallery.

MILLINERS work hard year round, but every October and November during the Spring Racing Carnival the whips really start cracking. It’s the time of year when the richest races are run and won, and fashions are shown off on the field. Torquay milliner Lynnette Lim says racing everywhere is picking up, with country race meets becoming really popular, and many people travelling from afar to fashions on the field competitions. Ms Lim has always loved fashions, from dressups with her sister, to playing around with the sewing machine during school holidays, to discovering hidden gems at the op shop. “I’ve always had a love of vintage fashion, and hats have always gone with that. There were lots of sixties fashions and beautiful hats that I’d pick up. “Creating hats is my passion.” Ms Lim’s reputation is built on her meshing of contemporary with vintage, creating custom made pieces, which have seen her place in many fashion awards, including winning the prestigious Millinery Award on Oaks Day of 2012, judged by world renowned UK milliner Philip Treacy. Her winning hat was then featured in the 50 years of Fashions on the Field exhibition at the Australian Racing Museum, at the MCG. “This year I’ll be judging on Oaks Day, which is really exciting, but it will be quite different as the event is now open to milliners from all over the world.” Lynnette’s spring range will feature among the work of many other top Australian milliners at the Millinery Association of Australia Maarvelous Millinery fashion event at Melbourne

Zoo on October 3. Each milliner will host their own pop-up store, where guests can discover the inspiration behind each collection, receive style advice and purchase their own stunning pieces for carnival – straight from the hat walk. Head to millineryaustralia.org/event/ maarvelous-millinery to book tickets.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux

Simple salmon delights TWO weeks ago I was “rushed” to hospital and have been in and out since. Nothing major, but a little worse than minor and I have been unable to work. During my fifty odd years I have spent some time in hospital, usually for sports injuries of one kind or another. They must be interesting places in which to work, yet incredibly boring, sad and lonely for those who would never chose to be there – the patients. Casualty, or ER as it is known due to many US television shows, is particularly interesting. Continually under resourced, and having to deal with the width and breadth of our community during their tribulations must take quite a toll on the staff. I applaud the doctors and nurses and support staff who have helped me and countless people in need. Initially, the hospital food was not of great importance to me. After a few days of “nil by mouth” however, I was ravenous and what was served did little to inspire. Institutional food is one of the least appealing attributes of institutions; not just hospitals. I understand the logistical impediments of providing nutritious food to hundreds of people, but surely there is a better way? Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal have both attempted to tackle the problem with television shows. I think Jamie’s Ministry of Food is a good idea, but wonder if celebrity chefs (and their agents) are sometimes more interested in the publicity these programs generate. I don’t want to be too cynical as I don’t have a magic solution. It seems to me most institutions set their goals too high and the results are always disappointing. It’s like trying to make a “vegetarian sausage”. Sausages are made of meat. If you don’t eat meat, don’t eat sausages. Those who prepare airline food try to make it something it can inherently never be. Given the food has to be prepared off site, transported, packaged for in-flight conditions, reheated and served in ridiculously cramped conditions by people who are not trained in cooking, it is no wonder the food is not “restaurant quality”; no matter how well credentialed the celebrity chef who designed the menu! I think Peter Rowland came up with a brilliant idea years ago for plane travel. At a time when all fights served hot food, he did away with the food “infrastructure” and offered passengers a brown paper bag consisting of a fresh sandwich and fruit. He invested resources on making the best possible sandwich rather than trying to recreate restaurant food in an environment which dictated its failure. Sadly the idea did not take off, as people 20 years ago still expected a hot meal on the plane. My advice is to avoid, where possible, hospitals, schools, universities, planes and prison! Enjoy as many home cooked fresh meals as possible with family and friends and live by my mother-in-law’s dictum, “don’t eat anything out of a bag”. This week’s dish is simple and one I have craved during the last fortnight. Buy the freshest piece of salmon (available from Torquay Farm Foods), brush with local olive oil, season and barbeque until medium rare. Serve on potato mash with lemon parsley and seasonal vegetables of your choice.

Preston presents boogified piano show BY TIFFANY PILCHER BOOGIE woogie piano whiz Jan Preston is hitting the road as hard as she hits the keys with a massive tour including a stop at the Potato Shed in October. Widely considered Australia’s queen of boogie piano, she was first introduced to the lively honkytonk style at an early age but only after she had undertaken classical training. “When I was growing up classical was the only style you could learn but I couldn’t stay away from the boogie,” she said. “I just knew that’s what I wanted to do so I taught myself by reading books over many laborious years. “I was so drawn to it, I’m quite a gregarious person and I love being surrounded by

that vigorous energy.” In her show, My Life as a Piano, Preston promises to bring her trademark vivacious spirit to the stage as she sings and tells tales of her life from the poignant to the hilarious. “The show is so physically active I quite literally have to train and do weights to keep up. “People tend to respond to that energy, I want them to be uplifted and entertained but it’s also a very moving performance, people may laugh and they may cry.” Jan Preston will perform at the Potato Shed, 41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale on October 5. Tickets are $18 for adults and $14 for concession card holders and can be purchased by calling 5251 1998.

Date: Friday 11th of October, 2013 Venue: RACV Resort Torquay, Great Ocean Road Ballroom Time: 6.30pm to 11pm Cost: $190 per person (can be purchased singular or up to table’s of 10) Tickets are only online at www.daftorquay.com BOOK NOW!

mind matters

Tuesday 24 September 2013

Š Joanne Madeline Moore 2013

Use the power of your clever Capricorn mind to work smarter, rather than harder. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe everything a well-meaning neighbour or relative tells you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they may be way off the mark. And is it time to give a fairweather friend the flick? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to surround yourself with people who boost your confidence; promote your talents; and encourage your dreams.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equinox week when day and night are equal plus the sun shifts into the sign of Libra. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to bring more harmony into your busy world. Try to make your professional/personal life more balanced plus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in relationships â&#x20AC;&#x201C; strive to get the ratio right between giving and taking. On the weekend, calm cooperation will get you a lot further than feisty fireworks!

Crabs can be slow-moving and over-cautious but Jupiter gives you a fantastic energy boost on Friday, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste it. Make time to do the things you love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like cooking, gardening, craftwork, DIY projects or having a relaxing massage. On Saturday, try approaching an old problem in an innovative new way. Confidence is the key to a successful week.

The sun shifts into your sign until October 23 so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to sparkle and shine. Work worries will temporarily fly out the window, as Venus and Jupiter bless employment opportunities and workplace relations. Utilise your substantial Libran charms to get where you want to go. Others are taking notice of what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing so make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting on a good show.

Your greatest asset is your Taurean tenacity, so use it to your advantage. But remember thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fine line between being persistent and just being plain stubborn! Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Venus/Jupiter trine is fortuitous for love, work, travel, finances and friendships. If you have to make an important decision, gather as much relevant information as possible. Knowledge is power.

Lions love to be waited on and pampered manual labor and daily chores definitely arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your favorite things. But this week, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not pulling your weight at home, then family members or housemates will be quick to point out your shortcomings. Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to re-negotiate the domestic roster, as you get your hands dirty and some sweat on your brow?

Saturn is sending obstacles your way and challenging your Scorpio sanity but hang in there! As birthday great F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.â&#x20AC;? Trying to coerce or control others could lead to confrontation on Friday, so step back and reassess the situation. Use your powerful Pluto energy to influence people in positive ways.

Many Aquarians will receive a welcome professional boost via a promotion, bonus or new job, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it for nothing. The pay-off is longer hours, more stressful working conditions or extra responsibilities. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in paid employment, you may be approached to do some volunteer work. Make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really passionate about.

Twins love to chat but can you walk your talk? This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stars encourage you to pluck creative ideas from the thought plane, and then put them into practice in the real world. Be inspired by Bruce Springsteen born on September 23 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talk about a dream, then try to make it real.â&#x20AC;? Wednesday and Thursday are your best days as you communicate, network and multi-task to the max.

The power of the group is on your side as you chat and collaborate; mix and mingle. But avoid being uncharacteristically hasty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you take short-cuts, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just end up having to do everything twice. Thursday and Friday favour communication, commerce, sales, education, research and all forms of social media. With your finger on the pulse, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be unstoppable!

Your positive attitude and sunny smile make you extra popular this week. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a super time to socialise, network, entertain or call in an old favour. Be inspired by Sagittarians like Bruce Lee, Walt Disney and Tina Turner, who have influenced others via their talent, energy, enthusiasm and powerful personalities. The weekend is fabulous for catching up with family and friends.

Dynamic Mars is shining a bright spotlight on your daily routine. Are you spending too many hours sitting on your Piscean posterior? Perhaps you could do some research on stand-up desks, or slot more exercise into your schedule? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful weekend to spend some quality time with a child or teenager, but a financial matter may head off in an unexpected direction.

BOOK REVIEW WITH GREAT ESCAPE BOOKS The Bone Season

The Gallery of Vanished Husbands by Natasha Solomons

THIS has been the big new fabulous sci-fi to emerge this year out of Britain. The Bone Season is set in 2059 where the Rephaim have arrived after a tear in the heavens released them. The Rephaim are a mythical eternal race that treat humans like chattel, but nevertheless protect them from far darker and more savage forces. Britain has become a repressive locked down police state. Young Paige Mahoney â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a human â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a voyant. She possesses extra sensory abilities to enter peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds, to twist and enter their dreamscape and potentially send them to the brink of madness and beyond. To escape both the Rephaim and the police she disappears from civilised society â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dropping out of school she joins Jaxon Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gang of voyants who, although complete sociopaths, survive under his care and live their own way, by their own rules. The novel really takes off when she is captured by the outer worldly Rephaim and comes under the exclusive tutelage of the most powerful and fearsome Rephaim of them all, Arcturus. With complicated politics, Hebrew references and a glossary of terms that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Googled, this is a grown up version of The Hunger Games. Due to be part of a seven book series, The Bone Season will leave you wishing for more.

JULIET Montague is a beautiful young mother of two children whose husband George has mysteriously vanished with her bank account and worse still, a much loved portrait of her as young girl. Devastated, she holds her family together with strength and pride. But it is the late 1950s and she is in a traditional English Jewish community, which has strict taboos on the behaviour of abandoned women. Slowly she feels that she is starting to disappear, to literally vanish from the landscape. While saving each day for a new refrigerator, on the day of her birthday, as she goes off to replace her old meat safe, she decides to treat herself to a visit of her favourite art gallery, as she does adore art and all things beautiful. Wandering through an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colony on the way to the gallery, she spies a stunning portrait of a young girl. It costs 21 guineas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the same amount of money as the refrigerator. Does she dare to spend every last cent on a piece of art? In a moment of impulsiveness she offers to buy the piece, but the petulant artist refuses to sell. Instead he offers to paint her portrait for the same amount, never having seen a face like hers before. Little does he know that at the age of 21, he is about to paint the masterpiece of his career. The Gallery of Vanished Husbands is a fabulous novel; I have barely touched the tip of all it has to offer. Read it and become lost in the world of Juliet.

Putty time for 20 years of Bellarine Adventure Golf BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Bellarine Adventure Golf is celebrating their 20th birthday by holding a big birthday bash for their customers on Sunday.

BELLARINE Adventure Golf has been the region’s favourite mini golf destination for 20 years, and to celebrate they’re throwing a birthday party for all their customers on Sunday. Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary sausage sizzle and free pony rides from Bellarine Pony Parties and Bellarine Adventure Golf’s mascot, Puttsie, will be giving out spot prizes. Visitors are invited to dress in their best golfing gear with even more prizes up for grabs for the best dressed. Putters will receive 20 per cent discount to play on the day and 20 per cent of the day’s green fees will be donated to Give Where You Live who work to alleviate disadvantage within the Geelong community. “We wanted to give back to the community and say thank you for having us for the last 20 years!” co-owner Sarah Webb, whose parents built the course with two other local families, said. “It’s going to be a fun day and everyone is welcome, even if you don’t want to use the course come along for the sausage sizzle and a pony ride.” Bellarine Adventure Golf is set among flowering gardens complete with creeks and waterfalls and Indigenous wildlife with two courses to challenge and entertain visitors. For putters who dare, The Mill course uses innovative vacuum systems to propel player’s balls up to two stories high and land where they least expect them. Multilevel greens, tricky water hazards and sticky sand traps will test even the best putter’s skills. Bellarine Adventure Golf’s 20th birthday party will be held at 1,540 Bellarine Highway, Wallington on September 29 from 10am to 5pm. Visit bellarineadventuregolf.com for more information.

Young gun photographer takes top prize BY TIFFANY PILCHER UP-AND-coming photographer Angus McGee has shown skill far beyond his 11 years to beat out hundreds of entrants and win the Capture Winter at Queenscliff Harbour photo competition this month. The competition was judged by Bellarine Times and Surf Coast Times photographer Michael Chambers who was unaware of the winner’s age until after he was chosen. “By using simple toning of the sky, the eye is allowed to enjoy the shapes of the boat, fisherman and seawall without conflict,” Mr Chambers said of the photo.

“It satisfied all criteria by bringing in a local boat, a man fishing with a coat on to imply winter and the sea wall of Queenscliff Harbour. “The photographer shows understanding of exposure control.” As the dual winner of the major prize and the student competition, Angus has won $500 cash and $300 for his school, Point Lonsdale Primary School. His father Travis said Angus is self taught after discovering a love of photography at a very early age. “Since he could pick up a camera he has taken an interest in photography.

(L-R) Angus McGee’s winning entry in the Queenscliff Harbour photo competition.

“He’s very much into drawing and different kinds of art so he’s developed a good eye, but he put in a lot of hard work to get that shot. “We went up there for two nights and three days to see the harbour in different light at different times of day and took hundreds of photos.” Angus has used the prize money to purchase a GoPro action camera to expand his skills and take photos while snorkelling with his dad these school holidays. Aaron Habgood and Lachlan Manley took out the competition’s second and third prize respectively.

Caddy’s walk for a cause BY TIFFANY PILCHER WHILE most people will spend January 1 sleeping off the previous night, local tradie Josh Caddy will be hitting the road for a marathon walk from Jan Juc to Mildura. The 600 kilometre walk will take Mr Caddy 12 days. He will average 50 kilometres each day and camp along the way. After recently undergoing a knee reconstruction and rehabilitation through Barwon Health, he’s hoping to raise at least $10,000 for Barwon Health’s Andew Love Cancer Centre on his walk. “Barwon Health assisted me greatly with everything I needed for my knee reconstruction and the Andrew Love Cancer Centre looked after a close family friend who had cancer so I wanted to help out wherever I could,” he said. Mr Caddy has been training by running and walking 40 kilometres every weekend and hopes to progress to walking 50 kilometres every Saturday and Sunday before he leaves. It currently takes him eight hours to walk 50 kilometres but on the way to Mildura he will also be towing a buggy with his clothing, food, water and camping equipment weighing 25 kilograms. He is confident he will be able to tackle the challenge completing the 100 kilometre Oxfam Trailwalker event earlier in the Dandenong Ranges this year. “I really enjoyed the Oxfam walk so when it was over I started planning another

one straight away. “It was a good way to switch off from work and just take time to think. “A lot of people tell me I’m crazy but I think it’s a lot of fun actually, I just pop in my iPod and off I go.” A number of fundraising events will be held in the lead up to the walk including a live music and silent auction event at Odyssey Tavern and Brewery on November 17. Head to mycause.com.au/page/ caddyswalk4cancer for more details and to donate to Caddy’s Walk for Cancer.

Josh Caddy is preparing to back his buggy and set off on a massive 600 kilometre walk from Jan Juc to Mildura on New Year’s Day to raise money for the Andrew Love Cancer Centre.

Educational app for autism A NEW educational app inspired by children within the autism spectrum and suitable for all children was released last week by Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Encompass Community Services. The Boomgate Gang app was created to engage, educate and entertain children on the autism spectrum in the toddler and pre-school age bracket. The app teaches children shapes, letters, numbers and colours through puzzles, songs, stories and interactive play. The gang consists of train characters William, Caitlin, Logan and Luca who together, show children how to learn while having fun through their upbeat attitude. Featuring Australian voices and showcasing

Australian landmarks, the Boomgate Gang has been developed to be relatable and accessible to children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We anticipate this being the first of many Apps from Encompass Interactive,â&#x20AC;? said chief executive officer of Encompass Community Services Elaine Robb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is such an exciting project and we anticipate that as Encompass Interactive expands, resultant jobs will be filled by people with disabilities in Geelong.â&#x20AC;? While developing the app, the Encompass team consulted children and young adults within the autism spectrum, parents, teachers and people working in the disability services field.

Step out to support those with cystic fibrosis BY ALI DEANE THE Jury family will be wearing their red shirts with pride and hope next month when they hit the start line for the inaugural Great Strides Walkathon Geelong. Thanks to a great idea, a lot of hard work, and support from cystic fibrosis (CF) Victoria the three and six kilometre fun run/walk at Barwon Valley Park on October 13 will not only spread awareness of the chronic health

condition, but also raise vital funds to support families. Jennifer Jury from Jan Juc is part of the Cystic Fibrosis Support Group of Geelong who is behind the Geelong edition of the usually Melbournebased event. Ms Jury is mother of Ellie-May, 5, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis just five weeks after birth, and must stick to a very healthy, high fat and high salt diet, keep active and undergo regular tests to manage her condition.

Olivia and Ellie-May Jury in their Cystic Fibrosis Victoria t-shirts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ready for the Great Strides Geelong fun run and walk next month.

Ms Jury said the more people who are aware of CF, the more support there will be for families, hence the significance of events like Great Strides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really encouraging people to get involved,â&#x20AC;? Ms Jury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more people who sign up, the more awareness and support there will be, and if we can raise a bit of money, that will go to support families who have a member with CF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve held quite a few fundraising events, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lunches and a cocktail silent auction party night earlier in the year. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping this becomes an annual event in Geelong.â&#x20AC;? The entire Jury family will be running in the three kilometre run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ellie-May has had a pretty good winter; you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know she has CF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for her to keep active, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this is a good event to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely excited about it.â&#x20AC;? Ms Jury encouraged people to wear red, and expects it to be a great family day out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be great fun, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of donations for a jumping castle, face painting and prizes, so there will be lots of fun things for the kids; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real family day.â&#x20AC;? To enter Great Strides Geelong on October 13, head to everydayhero.com.au/event/ greatstridesgeelong2013 and start your very own fundraising today. Cystic Fibrosis Victoria is looking for fun and friendly volunteers to help with race marshalling, registration, cooking the barbeque, selling merchandise and fundraising. Email volunteer@cfv.org.au or phone 9686 1811 if you are interested in getting involved. If you have prizes to donate, contact Jen on 0415 823 767 or email jennifer_jury@hotmail.com.

SANE tackles stigma at global meeting SANE Australia made a presentation last week at a groundbreaking global meeting to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. The presentation was about the stigma attached to mental illness. A statement from SANE Australia said imagine being refused entry to a museum or being barred from your local swimming pool or park. Then imagine itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because you have a mental illness. SANE chief executive officer Jack Heath said

Myotherapy is the assessment & treatment of musculoskeletal pain & dysfunction. FOR RELIEF FROM ÇŠ1HFN 6KRXOGHU3DLQ ÇŠ+HDGDFKHV 0LJUDLQHV ÇŠ/RZHU%DFN3DLQ ÇŠ6FLDWLFD'LVF%XOJHV

it may sound farfetched, but regulations like these exist in some parts of the world and illustrate the everyday stigma and discrimination that people with mental illness face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stigma is a major issue around the world for people affected by mental illness, influencing how they are viewed and how they view themselves,â&#x20AC;? Mr Heath, who presented at the first meeting of the International Anti-Stigma Alliance in London, said. Hosted by Time to Change, Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental health anti-stigma program run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, participants at the two-day meeting reviewed anti-stigma initiatives from over 14 countries. Those gathered shared the latest evidence and best practice from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stigma stops people asking for help and getting the treatment and support they need,â&#x20AC;? Mr Heath said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it more difficult to find somewhere decent to live and to get and keep a job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can also make it more difficult to get help to look after children, make friends and to feel good about yourself.â&#x20AC;? Studies in Australia and overseas show that stigma is a very common experience. A SANE Australia survey (2006) found that almost three-quarters of respondents living with a mental illness (74 per cent) had experienced stigma. They said a reduction in stigma would help them to feel better about themselves, manage their illness better, get back to work or study and join in social activities. Australian research among people living with a psychotic illness, such as schizophrenia, found that almost 40 per cent reported experiencing stigma or discrimination in the past year alone. Many reported that the fear of stigma or

discrimination had stopped them doing some of the things they had wanted to do, and overall stigma and discrimination was one of the main challenges reported for the coming year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Australia, we have seen improvements in awareness of common mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, but there is still widespread misunderstanding towards people living with conditions such as schizophrenia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We urgently need a national, long-term strategy to reduce the stigma associated with psychotic illnesses.â&#x20AC;? SANE Australia has developed a YouTube video

campaign (youtube.com/SANEaustralia), giving a platform to people affected by mental illness and suicide, their families, and other carers to explain in their own words the impact of stigma and prejudice on their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked ordinary Australians affected by mental illness what they have to say about stigma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage everyone to hear what they have to say and spread the word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential that governments listen and commit themselves to specific targets for reducing stigma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will never truly have progress in mental health without tackling stigma.â&#x20AC;?

Duffus and Dagg dominate Surf Coast Century run ENTRIES doubled for the Surf Coast Century over the weekend with 600 people lining up to take on the massive 100 kilometre ultra marathon. The event was held for the second time on Saturday with 200 solo runners and 400 relay team members tackling the spectacular figure eight Surf Coast trail, starting and finishing in Anglesea. Queenslander Ben Duffus rocketed through the finish line in a time of 8:28:14 to take out the men’s title while New Zealander Whitney Dagg outshone the Aussies to win the solo women’s division in 9:33:20. “I wasn’t sure how I’d go on the course today, but I just concentrated on my own race and tried not to get psyched-out with the calibre of athletes in the field.” Duffus said. “I felt good for most of the day, before the legs started burning around the 60 kilometre mark and that final leg on the soft said was absolutely brutal.” In the women’s solo field, Dagg was all class as she smashed the course in blistering time. “That was an awesome run, a friend of mine from New Zealand told me about the race with its great single track and undulating hills, so I thought yeah that sounds quite cool. “I loved the entire course because it had a bit of everything – single track through the trees and hopping over rocks were my favourite parts.” Campbell Maffett, Joel Fitzgerald, Ryan Twist and Aidan Rich of team Love the Run took out the relay team title, smashing the course record in 7:37:51.

FROM THE WITH TORQUAY BOWLS CLUB

WITH just a couple of weeks to go before the start of the Saturday pennant season on October 5, the club is getting into serious practice mode. We have had hit-outs with Anglesea and Bareena over the past couple of weeks, and our top players also were involved in a round-robin at the weekend. This year we have teams in divisions 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10 of Saturday competition, which offers the best opportunity we have had in years for strengthening teams without serious standard gaps in the divisions. We are happily in the position of having several more of our twilighters taking the plunge into pennant this year and it makes for a quite realistic advancement route for younger bowlers to prove their worth with a gradual jump in the quality of opposition. The club needs this infusion of fresh blood to take over from some of the older players who are looking for less stress and more social enjoyment from their Saturdays. Our first big day of the season is the monthly first-Wednesday event which is filled again despite the somewhat Spartan facilities we are enduring in the “Big Top”. The club also now has resumed communications with the wider world. The number to call in case of emergencies is 0457 426 608. There will be limited times anyone is available to answer the calls, so if it is a routine matter please contact one of the club’s office-bearers. If you only want to enter your name for a bowls game, the sheets are now located just inside the greens gate under the first shelter to the left, and please shut the cupboard doors when you are finished or there is every chance the sheets will end up on the Ninety Mile Beach. The phone will be locked away when the office is not occupied. Another phone number has been allocated for individuals or groups wanting to reserve rinks for social roll-ups and for the use of the clubhouse when the redevelopment is complete. The number is 0427 426 608 and is held by Helen Haeberle– not to be used for day-to-day bowls matters.

Tuesday 24 September 2013

TODAY I find myself thinking back on the legend that surrounds two locals who supposedly placed a number of sticks of gelignite under the stone wall across the Anglesea River mouth about 40 years ago in an attempt to blow it up. Unfortunately, they were only partially successful and now here we are still trying to complete what they started all those years ago. Whether it is myth or fact, it still makes for a great story and illustrates that people care for the health of the river. Now, the Surf Coast Shire has made another attempt and in the process has discovered more of the wall remains than they initially thought. Approximately 20 metres of the wall has now been removed by the contractors but the wall continues further under the sand than was anticipated. The distance between both banks is approximately 80 metres and the stone wall was originally built from bank to bank. Up until now, the shire believed only a section of the wall remained. No one fully understood how much of the wall still lay beneath the sand or even how it had been constructed, as no comprehensive records remained from the old shire showing the specs of the wall. The amount of wall found in these excavations has surprised many. One thing is for certain, the council acknowledges now that more of the wall remains than they initially believed. The council’s commitment to the removal of the wall, I believe, is still as strong as ever. The removal of the rock wall alone will not in itself resolve all the problems the Anglesea River faces, but it is a step in the right direction. The removal, in hand with other projects by various government departments (like the re-snagging of the river and investigations into how best to deal with acidic flows), will eventually help improve the river and make for a more healthy productive system. It worth noting in the recent national report by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation that the Anglesea River has been sighted as one of Victoria’s major estuary systems that is in need of immediate attention and support. There is no doubt that the rock wall has affected the health of the river The wall’s construction changed the face of the Anglesea River and, combined with other issues like flooding of the peat fields, changing water flows, the introduction of commercial activities and high acidic flows, impacted negatively on the river system.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB THE Anglesea ladies are back on the circuit, this week competing at Point Lonsdale in their open event. The team of Ros Holland, Helen Stewart and Ann Stokes came home with the Perpetual Shield with three very handy rounds of stroke and an aggregate score of 222. Ros was the winner of the B Grade gross event with 93 and Helen runner up with 95, and Ann won one of the NTPs. It was Helen’s birthday and I’m told she was as happy as dog with three tails! That’s one for the imagination. At home on Thursday, we had the finals of the singles knockout for the ladies and all three matches were decided on the 17th hole. Margot Parton won the Division 1 defeating Nancye Warhurst, Janice Calvert won Division 2 defeating Helen Stewart and Liz Burgess won Division 3 defeating Maralyn Cross. Well done to all the finalists. For those that haven’t seen the Footy Tipping Results, I can report that our winner this year was Jimpy ‘the Boy Wizard’ Shears, and he was in front from the very first round to the last – obviously using those magical powers!

WITH MARGOT SMITH

points. NTP winners were Tony Speed, Philip Warne, Keith Turner and Peter Hester. The ladies played Par on Thursday and the scores improved from last week. Winners were Ann Stokes in Division 1 with 1 up, Barb Cook in Division 2 with 2 up and Alanna Boston in Division 3 with 3 down. NTP winners were Dee Stewart, Sue Britnell, Janice Pekin and Alanna Boston.

FROM THE GOLF SHOP

We had a stableford event for the men on Wednesday, and they did have to contend with a bit of rain late in the day. Winners were Tony Speed in A grade with 39 points, Ray Heathcote in B grade with 41 points – the best score for the day, Howard Cross in C grade with 34 points and Cyril Leith in the Seniors with 37

Another stableford round for Saturday and with great weather and a drying course, there were no excuses for bad golf. Winners were Anthony Favaloro in A grade with 41 points, Wayne McIntyre in B grade with 40 points, Paul Stratham in C grade with 39 points, and Liz Dickens in the ladies with 34 points. The men made yet another clean sweep on the NTPs, with winners Keith Turner, Tommy Midolo, John Mooney and Sandy Talbot. It was back to Par for Sunday and a slightly damper course after the overnight rain. Our winners were Anthony Ivelja with the best score of the day, 5 up, in A grade, Ron Washington in B grade with 1 up, Christian Jakob in C grade with 2 up and Marilyn Armstrong in the ladies with 3 down. NTP winners were Brent McDonald, Jill Dilger, Peter Hester and Ann Stokes. Don’t forget – open week entry forms are available now at the clubhouse and on the web. Get your forms in early.

THE Torquay golf club hosted The Sands ladies on Tuesday for the yearly Sands V Torquay annual challenge cup. Our course was a little heavy underfoot from all the rain and the girls struggled on some holes to find a dry spot. All that being said The Sands girls triumphed over Torquay by 3 points to take the cup home for the fourth time, well done to The Sands. Torquay was too good in the grades competition though with all winners going to our ladies. A grade winner Gill Patten scored 37 points. Merle Whitnall shot 35 points to take out B grade and for C grade Lyn Delmenico had 37 points. NTPs Dee Matheson, Marg Joyner, Lyn Delmenico and Cheryl Collings (TSGC). June Laidler hit a super shot to take out the jackpot hole. Wednesday, the heavens opened up, not only with torrential rain but lightning and thunder, quite a few of the men got caught in the rather large and now cozy toilet on the 16th hole. The photos will be on our website soon! Little did we know you could get so many men in that space. Alas for all those that did get to finish their round the competition was cancelled as the course was unplayable in the afternoon. Unfortunate for all the players that had good scores in the morning but all players must be able to finish their rounds. Friday, Alan Tompkin took out the men’s Stableford competition with a solid 40 points. The ladies winner with 34 points was Lyn Delmenico.

NTPs Tom Lock, Colin Shoesmith and Lyn Delmenico. Rob Young hit the jackpot. Saturday, John Evans won A grade with a super plus 6, but B grade winner Peter Kaan had an even more impressive score with plus 11, well done Peter as we have not seen such a good card for a while. C grade was taken out by Herb Hertaeg also with a super plus 6. Roy Ball a newcomer to the seniors finished on top this week with plus 3. The ladies winner back from holidays with a lovely Queensland glow was Ronnie Beacom with minus 1. NTPs Luke Rogan, Dean Lucas, Michael Lunney, Doug Young, Kevin McDonald and Ainsley McCallum. Alec Ingles with a great shot early won the jackpot. Sunday in what turned out to be a beautiful day Matt Kofoed won the mixed competition with 41 points. NTPs David Hughes and Warren Gaunt. Richard McKinnes got the jackpot and Greg Dennis scored an eagle on the 11. AFL grand final day this Saturday and our members will have a shotgun start at 8am. As usual, the field is full as most members will be glued to their TVs in the afternoon to watch the big game. The golf shop will still be open and times are available for a game of golf after 12.30pm. Come and play 18 holes for only $20 (RACV Members) or $25 (Non-Members) after 12pm on Mondays and Thursdays.

Buller bike festival Meeting of the Tribes BY ALI DEANE A NEW cycling festival is set to lure cyclists of all kinds to the spectacular trails of Mount Buller over Melbourne Cup long weekend in November, thanks to local cycle touring company Peloton Tours. The Meeting of the Tribes highlight event is the Mt Buller Uphill, a challenging 16.5 kilometre race from Mirimbah National Park Gates to the Mt Buller village. The weekend also offers events for teams, social rides, tours and a Cycling Film Festival. The festival is designed to bring all types of riders together, and director Iain Lygo said it doesn’t matter if you are an elite cyclist, cafe racer, downhill mountain biker, or inner city hipster, the Meeting of the Tribes has something for all people on two wheels. The Mount Buller Uphill is entirely uphill and includes a full road closure, with prizes across multiple divisions. The most coveted division will be the mixed teams event, with the lowest aggregate time for a road biker, mountain biker, and fixed gear/retro cyclist. Cycling club bragging rights will also be on the line. Which club has the best climbers? The club with the five quickest climbers will be

declared the winner. Mr Lygo said the events would be competitive, but mostly social. “You would want to be a strong recreational rider; the idea is to bring those who do the Anaconda and Southern Exposure style of events together.” Meeting of the Tribes is the first of many cycling festivals Mr Lygo wishes to instigate. He said he hopes to take it to other mountains and host three or four events a year. The Cycling Film Festival features a series of short comedy films followed by a documentary on the work of Bikes for Humanity, the festival’s preferred charity partner. The festival also includes social rides, a four-day tour of Victoria’s High Country, and plenty of other cycling-related fun. Peloton Tours will be running a day at Mount Donna Buang or Lake Mountain on October 5 for riders to gauge if they are strong enough and ready for Mount Buller. Secure online bookings and accommodation packages are available now for the Meeting of the Tribes at Mount Buller on November 2-5. Head to pelotontours.com.au to book, and contact 9016 4214 or email rider@pelotontours. com.au for more information.

Groms lineup BY ALI DEANE GROMMETS across the Surf Coast and Bellarine will be out in force this spring capitalising on longer days and a heap of contests and clinics at our local beaches. The best local junior surfing will be on display next week as girls and boys from 12 and under to 16 go head to head in the Rip Curl Grom Search at Jan Juc. The event that begins on October 3 and runs over three days, gives junior surfers the opportunity to surf their way into the national final later in the year, and the international final during the Rip Curl Pro at Easter. Micro groms get their chance at glory when they hit Ocean Grove in November for stop three of the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps. This series sees surfers aged under 8 and up to 14 experience an introduction to competition, as

well as plenty of fun beach games. The Wahu Surfer Groms Comps are the ideal pathway into competition from the grassroots Vegemite Surfgroms junior development program, in its third year. Regional surf schools will be holding classes, which teach surf skills, conditions and surf etiquette. Also ocean awareness, beach safety, first aid and rescue skills. For more head to surfgroms.com and surfingaustralia.com/vic.

Lorne Dolphins dominate in tight final BY ALI DEANE THE Lorne Dolphins under 15s only lost one game this season and they capped it off with a hard fought win in the grand final against Otway Districts recently, 40-33. Most of the team are back-to-back premiers having won the under 13s last year. The one game they lost this season was only by

one point. Coach and A grade player Carly Enticott said she was exceptionally pleased with the girls’ teamwork on the day “It was a hard fought game. “We managed to apply pressure and create turnovers when it really counted. “A fantastic result to top off a very successful year for the girls.” Ruby Meredith was Best on Court.

The Torquay Netball Club rounded off a successful season in which they won four premierships including the A grade flag with their presentation night at the clubrooms on Friday.

Torquay hockey club creates tornado BY ALI DEANE IN THEIR first season in the competition, the Torquay Tornadoes Hockey Club has not only clinched a win, a runner-up, and a second spot on the ladder, they’ve also proved they will be one side to watch next season. The Torquay Tornadoes women’s division 2 played their way to a sensational 5-1 victory over the Saints last weekend, to earn them their first senior Premiership and a promotion into division 1. Torquay’s men’s division 1 were very unlucky not to take out the premiership as well, after a 2-2 draw went into extra time, with Newtown scoring a golden goal with just 30 seconds to go. The under 11 team finished second on the ladder in their first season, six players were selected for regional representative teams, one for the junior State side and three have recently been chosen for the Geelong Regional Hockey Academy. “Torquay Tornadoes Hockey Club was playing their first year in the senior competition, so it was

a significant achievement to take the game so far,” Reece Fiddler said “Torquay Hockey Club has really shown the Geelong teams that there are some new players in town and our club is definitely one to watch out for in 2014.” Players wanting to register their interest for the 2014 season should contact Reece on 0401 854 447.

The Torquay Tornadoes Hockey Club shone during finals season, above the division 1 men pause for a group shot with their runners-up flag last weekend.

THE Surf Coast Football Club’s women’s division 2 team has taken the premiership for the Geelong region after a thrilling encounter against Breakwater Eagles in the grand final on Saturday. The Coasters clinched a dramatic 5-4 victory at Myers Reserve after two hours of outstanding women’s soccer, which set a new benchmark in the region. The winning goal was netted by captain Heather Gibson in the last few minutes of extra time from a penalty against the Eagles for a hand ball in the box. By then, many of the supporters could barely watch, and the tension around the ground was palpable as she struck the ball low and hard into the back left corner of the net.

Earlier, a brutal encounter between sweeper Sophie Razmara and an Eagles player caused great consternation after Sophie hit the ground hard and briefly lay motionless. But to everyone’s relief, she was back on the pitch after a short break, showing the kind of spirit that she is known and loved for. It was the Surf Coast team’s first premiership and the culmination of five years of hard work by this dedicated team of girls. All the players are only 15 or 16 years old and many of them started playing soccer together as 10-year-olds in the Surf Coast soccer academy. They have made the grand final twice, in 2010 and 2011, but were beaten by Kardinia College on both occasions. Kardinia has dominated this

competition for the last five years. This was the first year Kardinia did not make the grand final, after going down 2-1 to Surf Coast in a hard-fought preliminary final on Kardinia’s home turf. Surf Coast coach Rameen Razmara paid tribute to his players at the prize giving ceremony on Saturday, saying they were a talented group of girls who deserved their victory. “I hope that you will all keep playing soccer because it’s a great sport for young women and some of you have the potential to go much further,” he said. SCFC President Joe Taylor said he was delighted with the historic win and congratulated the girls on flying the club’s colours high in the region.
